What is an Apostille?

Apostille service is a process of authentication of public official signatures on documents to be used outside the United States of America.

Apostille is a document issued by a State government officer who authenticates that the official signature and seal/stamp of a notary public or other public signatory on your original document is legal and should be accepted internationally by the governments of foreign countries.

In 1961 many nations joined together to create a simplified method of “legalizing” documents for universal recognition. Members of the conference, known as the Hague Convention, adopted a document referred to as an Apostille that would be recognized by all member of Hague Convention.
