Shipping Methods

Standard Shipping

Certificates ordered with standard shipping are sent through USPS and usually arrive to locations in the U.S. within 2-3 weeks. Standard international shipments will usually arrive in 4-8 weeks; however, standard shipping is not recommended for international certificate orders, as Bridge cannot track the order in the case that it becomes lost. Please note that Bridge cannot guarantee the arrival of a certificate shipped standard.

Express Shipping

Express shipping is included in the Hard Copy + Notarization + Apostille option and it can also be added to other certificate options during checkout for an additional USD $75. Express shipping is highly recommended for certificates being mailed outside the U.S., since the order can be tracked.

What is an Apostille?

In 1961, countries around the world participated in the Hague Convention to agree upon a method to exchange and verify documents across borders. One of the main authenticating documents agreed upon in this convention was an Apostille. An Apostille is an official certificate issued by the government of a country to authenticate a document for another country to accept its validity. In order for an Apostille to be recognized, both countries need to be members of the Hague Convention.

The United States of America is a member of the Hague Convention, but before you order an Apostille through Bridge it is important that you research whether your destination country is also a member of the Hague Convention. Countries for which an Apostille is accepted will also appear in the dropdown menu at checkout.

To learn more about Apostilles and to learn whether your destination country will accept them, please visit Travel.State.Gov.

TEFL/TESOL certification does not expire; however, your certificate will only be available via this verification portal for up to 6 years after your most recent course completion. We recommend that you download and save a PDF copy for personal records.
