Why do I need to apostille my Proof of Residency?
If you plan to apply for dual citizenship or a long-term visa, many countries require legal proof that you have residency in the United States. Documents that are typically accepted as proof of residency are a driver’s license, utility bill, home phone/internet bill, mortgage statement, lease agreement, letter from the employer, etc. If your destination is one of the 117 member-countries of the Hague Apostille Convention, your proof of residency must be apostilled. The most common countries to require an apostilled proof of residency for a visa or dual citizenship application are China, India, South Korea, Greece, and Switzerland.
How can I get an Apostille on a Proof of Residency document?
First, check with the country of your destination what documents they will accept as proof of residency, and have this document signed and notarized by a notary public. Make sure you select an experienced licensed notary for notarizing your proof of residency and that he/she applies proper notarial affidavit on your document. Once you have your Proof of Residency document notarized, you can mail it to our office for apostille processing. Keep in mind that an apostille on your Proof of Residency will be issued by the same state that had your document notarized. So, if your proof of residency was notarized by a public notary from California, an apostille will also be issued by the state of California.
