DOCUMENT(S) FOR APOSTILLE / LEGALIZATION:

Reasons you may need an apostille?

Obtaining an Apostille or Embassy Legalization

An Apostille is a specialized form of authentication designed for documents intended for use in nations that are signatories of the 1961 Hague Convention. This certification confirms the authenticity of your document for international use, acting as a bridge of trust between countries. QuikStamp is proud to offer both standard and expedited services for apostille and document legalization, ensuring your documents are recognized globally.

DOCUMENT(S) FOR APOSTILLE / LEGALIZATION:

Embassy legalization services

Embassy legalization services involve authenticating your legal documents at an embassy or consulate in another country, verifying those documents are valid. You may need embassy authentication services if you are getting married in, are seeking employment in or plan to move to another country. Corporate documents may include certificates of incorporation, certificates of good standing or others. The embassy authentication or consular legalization process can be complex; missteps can result in rejections and frustrating delays. The process depends on whether the country you need documents certified for is a member of The Hague Convention of 1961. In countries that follow this uniform process, documents may be apostilled to verify their authenticity.

For non-Hague Convention countries, the process depends on whether the documents you are working with were issued by a state government or by the U.S. government. State-issued documents such as birth or death certificates, driver’s licenses, divorce decrees, articles of incorporation and other records require state certification first, before being certified by the U.S. Department of State, and finally receiving an embassy certificate. Federally issued records — such as Social Security records, FBI background checks, Certificates of Naturalization and other federal documents — follow a different legalization process.

Obtaining an Apostille or Embassy Legalization

Apostilization of documents can be a difficult process. In most cases, you will need to obtain an original, certified copy of the document you are required to apostille. Once obtained, the original document will have to be submitted to the issuing office of authentications, such as the Secretary of State or the US State Dept, for apostille. The biggest challenge in the apostille process is the unique document and Secretary of State or State Dept requirements one must meet before the document is valid for apostille. This is why QuikStamp, offers a commitment free document review process that will ensure your documents meet all the requirements necessary for Apostille or Legalization. We will prepare, file and obtain your apostille documents on your behalf in the most convenient and professional manner.
