Apostille/Legalization in the US


The procedure to apostille or legalize a document in the United States varies depending upon whether it is a federal, state, business, commercial, educational, vital document (Birth certificates, Marriage certificates), etc.

Apostille authenticates the seals and signatures of officials on public documents such as birth certificates, notarial, or any other document issued by a public authority, so that they can be recognized in foreign countries that are parties to The Hague Convention. In the United States, there are multiple designated Competent Authorities to issue Apostille; the authority to issue an Apostille for a particular document depends on the origin of the document in question. State documents, such as notarizations or vital records are authenticated by designated state competent authorities, usually the corresponding origin state Secretary of State. Federal documents have to be apostille in Washington, D.C. by the US Department of State (Foreign Affairs). All other types of documents must be apostille in the state that generates them.
