Important! All California-issued documents can only receive an apostille from the State of California. 

Before you apply for a California apostille check the exact requirements regarding document specification and translation in your specific country of destination. Generally, documents submitted for apostille service in California must meet the following requirements: 

• Vital records must be obtained through the office of vital records, and certified with a hand signature.
• Birth certificates, certificates of death, or marriage don’t need to be notarized, as long as they bear the seal and the signature. 
• If a birth or death certificate has the signature of a Health Officer or County Registrar (e.g. Local Registrar, Registrar of Vital Records), before we can obtain an apostille on your California birth certificate, you need to do one the following:   

- have that birth or death certificate certified by the county clerk’s office in the county in which it was issued; or
- obtain a certified copy of that birth or death certificate from the County recorder or State of California Department of Public Health

• If you need an apostille for school records you should obtain a signed and authorized copy of your diploma or transcript from the office of the school registrar.

Remember that apostille on your California-issued document can only be obtained for use by a member country of the Hague Apostille Convention. If your document is intended for use in a country that is not a party to the Hague Apostille Treaty, it will need to go through a different legalization process which involves first obtaining certification from the California Secretary of State, authentication from the U.S. Department of State, and finally, legalization from the embassy of the destination country in Washington DC.
