To request an apostille, you must contact the state that issued the legal document you wish to certify for international use.

Apostils / Document Authentication Services:

The document is reviewed by the Certification Office of the United States Department of State Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) from 8:00 am to 9:00 am, accepting delivery of documents.

Certification staff will only receive documents for review in the meantime.  Documents accepted between 8 am and 9 am at time of delivery.  They will be processed and returned within one to three working days.

Customers submitting the document will receive a receipt and a pick up date upon receipt of the document.

To claim your documents, do not return before the date between 8 am and 9 am.

The office will not accept requests that do not meet the certification / apostille criteria or that lack supporting documents for processing.  A certification staff member will contact customers who submit incomplete or ineligible requests.

At the time of submitting the document, customers must present proof of identity (valid national passport or photo ID or driving license).

Third party requestors (commercial couriers or persons submitting documents for authentication on behalf of others) must submit written authorization from requesters to act on their behalf when submitting documents for review.

The office will only offer same-day appointments and services to individuals and third parties for the document:

  • Life or death emergency (immediate illness, injury, death of an immediate family member or possible adoption).
  • Solid proof of travel within 48 hours of submission.
  • Official activity of US federal agencies.
  • Verification of expulsion.

These customers will receive a receipt with an appointment for the same day that they submit their documents.
