Secretary of State Apostille

Do you require an apostille from the Secretary of State?

In the United States, each state and the federal government can issue an Apostille, totaling 52 separate and distinct apostilles from the Secretary of State offices, and the U.S. Federal Government. The latter can issue an apostille from the District of Colombia (Washington, D.C.) and the U.S. Department of State.

To receive an apostille on your document, you will need to mail in the original to our office.  The processing time for apostille service through our office starts at one business day. We can also send prepared documents back to you with UPS or FedEx second day delivery service at no additional charge if shipped domestically. 

We are proud to be one of the very few registered service providers of the State allowing us the opportunity to process your documents fast, saving you time, money, and sparing you from the hassle of dealing with government offices.  Some States require County authentication and State apostille (a two-step authentication process).

An Apostille is issued for countries-members of the Hague Apostille Convention.

Below you can see the information typically included in an Apostille:

  • Country … [country name] This public document
  • has been signed by … [name]
  • acting in the capacity of … [function]
  • bears the seal/stamp of … [authority] certified
  • at … [location]
  • the … [date]
  • by … [name]
  • No … [apostille registration number]
  • Seal/stamp … [of the authority issuing the apostille]
  • Signature … [signature of authority issuing the 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!

"When I was trying to get OCI Processing for my son done in India, I came to know that birth certificate Apostille should be submitted. I was not aware of such a thing. I was not sure whom to trust, I have sent emails to few agencies who said they will get it done. The one thing I really liked about Global Apostille is their prompt response and clear communication through emails."
