What is an Apostille?
An Apostille is a certificate issued by a designated authority in a country where the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalization of Foreign Public Documents, Apostille Convention, is in force. See a model Apostille. Apostilles authenticate the seals and signatures of officials on public documents such as birth certificates, notaries, court orders, or any other document issued by a public authority so that they can be recognized in foreign countries that are parties to the Convention.
In the United States, there are multiple designated Competent Authorities to issue Apostilles, the authority to issue an Apostille for a particular document depends on the origin of the document in question. Federal executive branch documents, such as FBI background checks, are authenticated by the federal Competent Authority, the U.S. Department of State Authentications Office. State documents such as notarizations or vital records are authenticated by designated state competent authorities, usually the state Secretary of State.
Is Apostille the same as Authentication and Legalization in USA?
An Apostille certification will make your document valid for legal purposes in all other signatory countries. Authentication and Legalization will make your document valid for legal purposes only in the country of which the consulate has legalized the document. The important thing to remember is that when you have your document authenticated and legalized it is the equivalent of an Apostille certification.
