Apostilled birth certificates are needed if you intend to move to another country to study, work, get married, or obtain dual citizenship. An apostille attests to the authenticity of your birth certificate, including the seals and signatures on the document, and makes it uniformly recognized among countries - members of the Hague Apostille Convention of 1961. If you plan to move to a non-member country, your birth certificate will then need to follow the legalization through the Embassy or Consulate.
Global Apostille can apostille birth certificates issued by all 50 U.S. States and the District of Columbia.
Since the requirements for apostille on birth certificates are unique in every State, we recommend that you check with us before mailing us the original documents. In some states the birth certificate is issued by the court, health department, province, city, or parish. All 50 states can issue an apostille for a birth certificate, however, each state has its own set of requirements, which is why the process of getting an apostille for a birth certificate is not universal in every state, so it’s best to trust professionals like us to obtain an apostille on your birth certificate.
If your birth certificate has been lost, stolen, or damaged, you can request a new copy* on VitalChek.com and have it shipped directly to our office for apostille. Please note this option is not available in all states.
*If you can choose a birth certificate option for international use, make sure to choose this option.
*If you are ordering a New-York City issued birth certificate, make sure you request a birth vault certificate, which is always issued with a Letter of exemplification. This is a specific requirement to obtain an apostille in NYC.
Obtaining a birth certificate apostille is a complex process and should always be handled by professionals only.

Complicated matters must be handled by experts, and that’s why we recommend that you should let Global Apostille take care of obtaining your Birth Certificate apostille.
