SELECTING THIS OPTION WILL 'EXPRESS' THE AUTHENTICATION PROCESS OF LEGAL TEST RESULT REPORTS.
This option can only be selected in conjunction with the Authentication of Result (per Report) option.
The process of authenticating your results for official use in Thailand actually takes place in both the USA and Thailand. The entire process can take between eight (8) to 10 weeks. The exact time is dependent on the various authorities in the USA that provide the various authentication seals/stamps, and each of these state Government departments only provide rough estimates of when they will return the result back to our lab with their seal. This process is repeated for each department to which we must send the result report/s.
For the part of the process in the USA, after each stamp/seal is secured, the documentation must be sent back to our laboratory, before being sent out to the next Government department. Some of these departments are interstate; it is in the postage of the documentation to-and-fro that makes this process quite lengthy.
Therefore, if you are in a hurry, you can upgrade all the various domestic USA shipping, and international shipping to Thailand, from regular mail to first-class courier. This Express Authentication Surcharge is payable just once per case (not per individual report), and will take approximately four (4) to six (6) weeks.
This option is per case, not per report. This means that if you need to authenticate more than one report, and want to express the authentications, you only need to select this express option once.
