Do you need to apostille a passport?
At USA Apostille, Inc., we take the guesswork out of obtaining an apostille on your passport.
We can apostille any passport (Example: USA, India, UK, Russia, China, etc…) signed and notarized in all 50 U.S. states, District of Columbia, and the U.S. Federal Government (US Embassy or Consulate). For countries who are non-members of the Hague Apostille Convention, we can also process your passport through the U.S. Department of State and the Embassy or Consulate office.
Most countries will only request for you to apostille the page of your passport with your picture and information. Some countries may request for you to color copy the entire passport and only have the page with your picture and information to be signed, notarized, and apostilled. Be sure to double check with the requesting country in order to avoid any delays or additional costs.
In order to apostille your passport, you must mail in the original notarized color copy to our office for processing. If you are outside of the USA, please do not send in your original passport. We recommend that you contact the local U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate office to schedule a time to meet with a U.S. Federal notary and have the color copy signed and notarized. Once notarized, you can then mail in the notarized color copy to our Washington DC office for processing.
If you are in the United States, please meet with a local notary public. We recommend that you find a notary public who has at least five years of experience and one who will follow the notarial laws of their State. Some States require a notarized document to also be authenticated by the County Clerk. These States include: Hawaii, Kentucky, Maryland, New York, and Tennessee.
Please Note: We can only help you with documents originating from or notarized within the United States and for another country. If your passport is notarized in another country, you will need to contact the correct competent authority to assist you in that country.
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!
