At A-DOCS, INC., we provide the following Apostille services:
Apostille is a French word for certification. The Apostille is a special 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 Hague Apostille Convention, it is required that the Apostille shall be attached to any document issued on the territory of the United States of America to verify its authenticity in a foreign country.
In the US, the Apostille can be issued by all 50 states and the Federal Government. However, it is important to note that the Apostille can be issued only for the document signed by a Notary Public or by the official of the same state. For example, if the document was signed in Massachusetts, the Apostille for it cannot be issued in New York.
Basically, you will need an Apostille attached to any document issued in the US if you intend to use the document in a foreign country. Besides, the document and the Apostille itself must be translated into an official language of the country where the document is meant to be used.
