Global Apostille offers apostille service for U.S. Passports that need to be certified for use abroad. We generally ask for your original passport to authenticate it. Another option is for you to have a licensed Notary public certify a color copy of your passport if you don’t want or unable to mail us the original. Please check with the country of your destination if a certified copy is sufficient before you send your passport or its copy to us.
A Notary Public certifying a copy of your passport must be licensed in the state of your residence and have experience in notarizing documents for use in foreign countries. Proper notary forms and an affidavit should be used to avoid any delays with further legalizing of your passport. When you receive a notarized certified copy of your US passport, check it carefully and make sure that it bears the notary’s name, date of notarization, and notary seal. Some states require different acknowledgment statements to accompany a certified US passport copy from a passport holder. Generally, the statement can be something like this: “I do hereby attest that this is a true and correct photocopy of my US Passport.” (Signed and dated).
You can also mail your passport to our office and we will take care of notarizing it by the rules of the state issuing authentication.
An apostille on a US passport can only be issued for use in the member-countries of the Hague Apostille Convention. If you are traveling to a country that is not a member of the Hague Apostille Treaty, you will need to request US passport legalization - a special authentication through the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., and legalization through the Embassy / Consulate office.
Obtaining an apostille can be a complicated process and should not be left to someone that does not understand all of the steps involved. Untrained persons that do not understand all of the tasks involved for certification in each country are more likely to make errors, which will delay the processing of your documents for days, weeks, or even months. Instead of wasting time and money with non-professionals, let Global Apostille handle the apostille for your U.S passport.
