An apostille (pronounced ah-po-stee), meaning “certification” in French, is a seal that legitimizes legal documents for use outside the United States or country of origin. This is commonly required when you go overseas to conduct business, buy property, get married, or adopt a child.
Why you might need an apostille
In some cases, documents to be used overseas may require an apostille before a foreign country will recognize its authenticity and authority. Many but not all countries accept an apostille from the Secretary of State where the document originated.
When a state issues an apostille and authentication, it is to verify the notary public is authorized to provide the notarization or certification and that he/she has done so under state laws.Continue to full article
The Benefits of Using an experienced Apostille Facilitator
Travel agents and wedding planners are masters of organization and detail. With the heavy responsibility of coordinating important events in the lives of clients, being able to delegate some of the tasks to a notary apostille facilitator could be an invaluable time and money saver, especially when managing a destination wedding in a foreign country.
Depending on the country where the wedding is taking place, different documents may be required to be apostilled- legally certified, so that they can be recognized in a foreign country. These documents may include marriage licenses, birth certificates, and other legal documents. Weddings in popular destinations like Mexico or the Bahamas have very different requirements from countries such as Thailand or Singapore, and you will want to make sure your client has all of the information they need to complete this process with fidelity.
Obtaining an apostille for destination wedding documents can be complex and time-consuming, as it may involve obtaining signatures and certifications from multiple authorities. An apostille facilitator can help simplify this process by handling all aspects of the apostille request, including obtaining necessary signatures, preparing the documents, and submitting them to the apropriate authorities.Continue to full article
