Apostille FAQs

What is an Apostille?

An Apostille is a method of certifying a document for use in another country pursuant to the 1961 Hague Convention. With certification by Apostille or gold seal, your Articles of Incorporation (for corporations) or Articles of Organization (for limited liability companies) are entitled to recognition in the country of intended use, and no additional certification or legalization by the embassy or consulate of the foreign country where the document is to be used is required.

Please note, certain countries require a Certified Copy of the Articles of Incorporation or Articles of Organization with an appropriate gold seal instead of an apostillized copy.
