When you're asked to submit the apostilled passport, in most cases, it means to apostille your passport's identification page - that's the page with your picture and basic information.
Apostille or Authentication of a Passport
▶️ Step 1: Notarize the ID page of your passport.
Find a local notary to get your passport's ID page notarized. Present your original passport in front of the notary and seek "True Copy" notarization, or statement/affidavit notarization in case notarizing a copy of a document is not allowed in your state. Please make sure the copy of the passport is properly notarized. Proper notarization should contain these 7 items.
▶️ Step 2: Order the service that suits your situation.
After obtaining the notarized passport copy, depending on whether the destination country is a member of the Hague Convention of 1961, complete the following steps:
If the destination country is a member country/region (such as Germany, Spain, France, etc.):
Get an Apostille from the Secretary of State in your state. No further certification is needed.
Get an Authentication from the Secretary of State in your state.
Get an Authentication from the U.S. Department of State. (if required)
Get a Legalization from the Embassy.
▶️ Step 3: Mail the following documents to our office.
The checklist below may vary by destination country. Be sure to contact us for confirmation.
2. Embassy's request or application form
