Apostille process

The Apostille process was established following the 1964 Hague Convention which created a treaty between nations to allow for a more simplified documentation flow. This process relies on the State Department or local Secretary of State (depending on document type) assessing the original document to determine authenticity and identify potential issues or concerns. The Apostille confirms for foreign governments that the document has gone through all appropriate channels for approval.
