What is an Apostille?

An “Apostille” is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. A list of countries that accept Apostilles is provided by the US State Department. If the country of intended use does not participate in the Hague Convention, documents being sent to that country can be “Authenticated via the Embassy or Consulate for the country where the Document(s) will be used”.

The Office of the U.S. Department of State located in Washington, DC provides Apostille and Authentication service to U.S. citizens and foreign nationals on Federal or State Documents that will be used in a foreign country.

The Apostille Process can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
