State Department Apostille Requirements
Apostilles authenticate the seals and signatures of officials on public documents such as birth certificates, court orders, or any other document issued by a federal agency or certified by an American or foreign consul. An apostille certifies the document(s), so the document can be recognized in foreign countries that are members of the 1961 Hague Convention Treaty. We only issue apostilles for federal documents to use in countries that are members of the 1961 Hague Convention.
Before submitting documents requiring authentication, you must:
1) Notarize each document in front of a notary public:
- For notaries public commissioned through the county: Documents must first be certified by the clerk of court in the county where the notary is commissioned, and then certified by the secretary of state in the state where the document was notarized.
- For notaries public commissioned through the state: Documents must only be certified by the secretary of state in the state where the document was notarized.
2) Follow this order for notarizing and certifying your document:
- Your document is issued to you
- Get your document notarized
- If it applies, get your document certified by the clerk of court
- Get your document certified by the secretary of state.
- Note: If a document requires certification from both the clerk of court and secretary of state, the dates must show that the clerk of court certification was done before the secretary of state certification.

I hate to deal with online businesses because you don’t know if they are even real or simply identity thieves! I am glad to recommend this business because they have an actual business office and I met the people handling my vital records face to face. So be careful who you hire to handle your apostille and personal documents.
