1.    What is an Apostille?

Apostille is a term of French origin that refers to a certification process that is recognized internationally. The certification is issued by the Secretary of State and affixed to the original document to confirm the authenticity of an official's signature. The purpose of an Apostille is to enable the document to be legally used in foreign countries that are part of the Hague Convention without the need for further certification or Authentication.

2.    How can our Apostille service help?

Our Apostille and Authentication service understands that government procedures can be complex and time-consuming. That's why we are dedicated to helping you obtain Apostille(s) and Authentication(s) for your document(s) with ease and efficiency. Simply provide us with your original document(s), and our team will carefully review, provide notarization and translation if needed and submit them for government processing. Once completed, we will promptly return your documents and the Apostille certification, ensuring they are ready for use internationally.

3.    How long does it take to get an Apostille?

The processing time for obtaining an Apostille from the State can be lengthy, sometimes taking several weeks. However, our Apostille service offers a quick turnaround time. With our rush service, you can typically receive your Apostille in 1-4 business days.

4.    What is the Hague Convention?

The Hague Convention is an international treaty created to simplify the process of authenticating documents for use abroad. If a country is a part of the Hague Convention, you can use an Apostille certificate on your document for use in that country.

5.     Can I obtain an Apostille for my document if the country of use is not a member of the Hague Convention?

For countries that are not part of the Hague Convention, the Apostille process does not apply. Instead, the document would go through the authentication process involving additional steps and certifications specific to the country where the document will be used. These requirements can vary significantly between countries, making the process more complex and time-consuming. If your document needs to be authenticated, you can contact our experts to ensure your document is authenticated correctly.

6.    Is it possible to obtain an Apostille using a copy of my document?

No. All documents needing an Apostille must be original. Furthermore, some documents may need to be less than 6 months old. Please Note: It is important to ensure that the original documents are in good condition and do not have any smudges, rips, or tears to avoid delay or rejection of the Apostille process. 

7.     I have documents for multiple states that need an Apostille; can you help me?

Yes! Simply note the additional states in the order form.
