Do you need to apostille a U.S. birth certificate for India? Do you need to obtain an OCI (Overseas Citizenship of India)card?
At USA Apostille, Inc., we take the guesswork out of obtaining an apostille on your child’s birth certificate. We can apostille birth certificates issued from all 50 states including the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.). The most popular state we apostille birth certificates from is California. In California, we have an office in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The country of India is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention. A birth certificate destined for India will receive an apostille from the Secretary of State’s office. Once the state attaches the apostille, no other authentication is required.
In order to apostille your child’s birth certificate, you will need to mail in the original or a certified copy issued from the County Clerk’s office. In some states, a birth certificate will be issued by the State Registrar (Example: Florida birth certificate).
Please note that a birth certificate must be certified from the state of issue. For example, a California birth certificate can only be apostilled in California.
In order to apostille the birth certificate for India, please mail in the birth certificate with our order forms for processing time. Our processing time is as fast as the same day and we also provide FedEx overnight return shipping at no additional cost (Premier service).
Obtaining an apostille can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
