An apostille is a process of certification as described in the Hague Convention that certifies a document for universal international acceptance. There are two types of apostilles. Those that are certified by the local Department of State, and those that are certified by the US Department of State Federal Office of Authentications in Washington DC.
We would be happy to help you get an apostille affixed to your document. The apostille will be an attachment to your document and will contain a U.S Department of State seal and stamp on it. A federal apostille is required on documents that have a federal government officer’s signature. Common documents that require a federal apostille are FBI Background Checks, Federal Aviation Documentation, name change documents, naturalization documents, and any document that has a signature from a member of a US consulate or embassy.
