What is a Death Certificate?
A death certificate is a very important official document that records the location and date of a person’s death, age at death, and the cause of death. In the USA, a death certificate is necessary for a deceased person’s family for a number of reasons. For example, to settle a deceased’s estate related matters or claim insurance benefits.

What is an Apostille?
Apostille is a French word for certification. It is a certificate issued for the document, so it becomes valid abroad. On October 5, 1961, a number of countries created an easy method to legalize documents for international use. Those countries are referred to as the members of the Hague Apostille Convention. According to the Convention, it is required that any document issued on the territory of one country shall be authenticated in order to be recognized and accepted in another country member of the Hague Convention.
How to Obtain a Death Certificate Apostille?
It is important to note that the Apostille cannot be obtained for the original death certificate. Thus, first of all, you will need to get a certified copy of the death certificate. Such a copy has a number of special security features to prove that the document is authentic. A death certificate certified copy can have the following security features – heat-sensitive ink, a watermark, micro-printing, a raised seal, multi-colored background, etc.

If the person passed away in New York State, you can obtain a death certificate certified copy from the New York Department of State online or by mail.
In case the person passed away in the United States, outside of New York, you will need to contact the Office of Vital Records of that particular state for further instructions on how to obtain a death certificate certified copy.
