Apostilles

Q1. What is an apostille and what purpose does it serve?
A1.  An apostille is a special certificate used to authenticate public documents for international use. Filed documents and certificates of fact may be certified with an apostille for use in countries participating in the 1961 Hague Convention.

If you need certification of a document for use in a country that does not participate in the Hague Convention, visit the U.S. Department of State website.
