A state-issued document with an apostille, for use in countries that are members of the 1961 Hague Convention, does not require additional certification by the U.S. Department of State or legalization by the destination country's embassy in the U.S. to be recognized in a participating country. Click here to order the apostille service.


However, state-issued documents for use in Non-Hague Apostille countries may need further authentication processes, for example, the authentication certificate by the U.S. Department of State and the legalization by the destination country's embassy in the U.S. In this case, multi-step authentication is what you'll expect.

In addition, if your documents are federally issued, they cannot be apostilled at the local and state level. Otherwise, you should acquire the Apostille from the U.S. Department of State, which is located in Washington, D.C.

The apostille and authentication process can be complicated, time-consuming, and distracting that requires expertise and experience. Inappropriate documentation may result in subsequent authentication requests being rejected, and you will have to start over, costing your time and money. So just leave it to us! Our experts can provide you with a full range of fast services that allow you to save time and focus on your own careers and key areas.
