Do you need to apostille your documents for Saudi Arabia?
On December 7, 2022 Saudi Arabia will join the Hague Apostille Convention whereas documents originating from or notarized in the U.S. will only require the apostille from the Secretary of State’s office.
For example, if you need to apostille your California marriage certificate for Saudi Arabia, the California State apostille is sufficient. Your state issued documents no longer require to be legalized through the U.S. Department of State and the Saudi Arabia Embassy.
An FBI background check for Saudi Arabia will only require the apostille from the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C.
The purpose of the Hague Apostille Convention is to create a simplified method of “authenticating” documents for universal recognition. An apostille certifies the official who signed your documents (Example: State official, County Clerk, Notary Public, Superior Court, FBI, U.S. Federal District Court, etc…)
