Apostille services as well as authentications are essential arrangements to be made prior conducting any business outside the United States. Our apostille stamp service will help you apostille federal, state, county, municipal and all private documents to be deemed valid and legal anywhere in the world.
In this post, we will provide a quick recap of all important information to know about apostille and authentication.
Whether you are relocating for a new job in Oman, setting up your own business in Mexico or getting married in France, you will need your personal documents to be apostilled. Likewise, engaging in some business in Canada or China will require you to authenticate the documents as opposed to apostille them.
Virtually any business you are going to conduct abroad requires documents authorization: from adopting a child to sorting out real estate purchase or inheritance. The most popular documents subject to apostille certification are birth and marriage certificates, death certificates, power of attorney, divorce decrees, etc.
An apostille is an internationally accepted form of documents certification. In 1961, the Hague Apostille Convention introduced the idea of an apostille and today this agreement is signed by one hundred and thirteen countries across the world.
To be sure that the documents you provide are indeed valid and legally binding, the signatories of the Hague Apostille Convention require that they are apostilled before being mailed to their governments. Most often, an apostille is just a stamp verifying that the documents are valid and correct. In the United States, all states are authorized to provide the apostille service.

An apostille is a very easy and convenient form of authenticating the documents to be used outside the United States. Unfortunately, not all countries recognize apostilles as a means of documents verification. Those of them that do not use apostille will require authentication of documents.
Authenticating documents is similar to getting them apostilled. The difference is that you would need to contact the US Department of State to authenticate your papers and then present them to the embassy of the country where you are going to conduct business for legalization. Today, there are about 80 countries that are not signatories of the Hague Apostille Convention.
Exactly how long it will take to authenticate your documents for a non-apostille country will depend on each particular case. Note that it can sometimes take a week or even longer to authenticate the documents so be sure to plan in advance.
