Apostille on Birth Certificate

A foreign country will require an Apostille on your Birth Certificate for the following reasons:

  • Obtaining Dual Citizenship
  • Marriage
  • Application for a long-term visa
  • Employment
  • Study
  • Handling Assets/Inheritance questions and more.

To obtain an Apostille we will need your original document, a County Clerk issued certified copy (which is comparable to the original), or a certified copy issued by the State Registrar.  If you are not sure how to get a certified copy of your Birth Certificate, contact your County Clerk’s office for detailed instructions.  You can request a new certified copy online via VitalChek.

Most states accept an original Birth Certificate regardless of its issue date. The only two exceptions are the states of Virginia and Wisconsin, which can accept an original or certified copy of a Birth Certificate if either was issued within the past 12 months.  So, if you have an original Birth Certificate issued in Virginia 25 years ago, you will need to obtain a new certified copy to apply for an Apostille. 

Obtaining an apostille can be intricate. Avoid leaving this task for inexperienced staff or non-professionals who are not fully aware of the complexities of the apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your application may be rejected, and you lose time and money. Make a better choice!

Our experts are available Monday through Saturday from 10.00 AM to 6.00 PM. Please call us at 1-770-447-0360 and we will answer all your questions and offer easy to follow detailed instructions.
