An apostille, pronounced “Ahh Poh Steel” which is a French word that translates to certification authenticates the origin of a public document. It is a simplified form of authentication that is recognized by countries that are parties to the Hague Convention. An apostille does not verify the content of the document, but it certifies that the signature, seal or stamp appearing on the document is genuine.

Obtaining an apostille can be a complicated process due to the varying types of document certification and the specific country requirements for document presentation. These factors determine the type of certificate needed for authentication.

 

Furthermore, the government agency has its own set of rules and standards that must be met before a certified document can be valid for an apostille or authentication.

Apostille Documents

What Information Do You Need For An Apostille?

To get the apostille process started, San Diego Notary Signing Agent needs to know the following to provide you an accurate, transparent quote:

  • Document type

  • Number of documents

  • State of origin for the document

  • Country of destination

  • Does the document need to be notarized? And if it’s already notarized, where was it notarized?

  • Does the document require translation? And if so, does the translation require an apostille?

  • Turn time to receive the document back

  • Apostille delivery method

Countries that participate in the 1961 Hague Convention have agreed to accept an apostille cover sheet as the only authentication required for a document to be used in their country. This cover sheet or apostille is issued by the Secretary of State in the state that the document originated from. For non-Hague countries, instead of authenticating through the Secretary of State, it requires authentication by the U.S. Department of State in Washington D.C. and legalized at the embassy/consulate of the destination country.

San Diego Notary Signing Agent offers complimentary document review service at no obligation to ensure that your documents satisfy all the required criteria for apostille or legalization. We will confirm you don’t have any blank spaces, all required signatures, appropriate notarization, correct fees, and meet all the requirements at either the state or federal level being submitted to process your apostille order.

Documents that commonly require an apostille can be for personal, corporate, or academic reasons.
