What Is An Apostille?

And do you need one?

An apostille specifies the moralities through which a document issued in one of the signatory countries can be certified for legal International purposes in all the other signatory states or another country.

Such a certification is called an apostille (French: certification). It is an international certification comparable to a notarisation in domestic law.

Apostilles are affixed by competent authorities designated by the government of a state which is party to the convention. To be eligible for an apostille, a document must first be issued or certified by an officer recognized by the authority that will issue the apostille (notary public). Later you can apostille your documents in the Secretary of State of  your country.  Search in google  for the nearest Secretary of State. We can apostille your documents, please contact us for details.

APPROXIMATE COST PER DOCUMENT: US$ 7.00

APOSTILLE Q&A

DO I NEED TO APOSTILLE OR NOTARIZED MY DOCUMENTS?
