I am not in the U.S. but I have a U.S. issued document to apostille. Can I still use your service?

Navigating the apostille process for U.S.-issued documents can seem daunting, especially when you're outside the United States. Whether it’s for personal or professional reasons, many find themselves in need of authenticating documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, or academic records for use in another country. The good news is, even if you're not currently in the U.S., State Document can assist you in obtaining the necessary apostille.

Understanding the Apostille Process

An apostille certifies the authenticity of the signature on the document; the capacity in which the person signing the document acted; and the identity of any stamp or seal affixed to the document. This form of authentication is required when a document from one country is to be used in another country that is a member of the 1961 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents.
