What is an apostille birth certificate?

An apostille birth certificate is a legalized and certified version of a birth certificate that is recognized and accepted by countries that are part of the Hague Apostille Convention. This process of certification verifies the authenticity of the birth certificate, making it valid for use in foreign countries. An apostille birth certificate is often required when an individual needs to prove their identity or citizenship for immigration, employment, or other international purposes.

What does an apostille look like on a birth certificate?

A birth certificate authenticated by an apostille typically has a unique, official appearance and includes specific information, such as the name and signature of the certifying authority, the date of issuance, and the stamp or seal of the apostille authority. The apostille certificate is attached to the original birth certificate and provides proof that the document is genuine and has been properly verified.

How long does the process take?

The turnaround time for an apostille can vary, but our efficient process ensures that your document is returned to you in 6 to 8 weeks.

Do I need to be present for the process?

No, you do not need to be present for the process. Our team can handle the entire process on your behalf.
