Types of Certifications:

Apostille

The word Apostille is of French origin meaning “certification”. An Apostille is the name for a specialized certificate issued by the US Secretary of State to be used in foreign countries that participate in the 1961 Hague Convention.

Authentication/Authority

If the country of intended use DOES NOT participate in the Hague Convention, documents being sent to that country can be "authenticated" or "certified”. This involves multiple authentications by different authorities in the chain of issuance (i.e. US Department of State, Authentications Office and the Foreign Embassy of the country of intended use.)

What kind of documents often require Apostille?

Various types of documents can be authenticated, including birth certificates, marriage certificates, educational degrees, power of attorney documents, commercial documents, and more. The specific requirements may vary depending on the country and purpose of authentication.
