USA Passport Apostille

Do you need to apostille your USA Passport?

If you are currently located in the USA, you can either make a color copy of your passport and meet with a notary or you can mail in your original passport to our Washington DC office for processing.  If you are outside of the USA, you can meet with a local US Embassy or US Consulate and have a copy of your passport notarized.

Passports notarized within a U.S. State must also receive an apostille from the same-State.  For example, if you meet with a California notary and have a color copy of your passport notarized, you will need to mail in your notarized passport to our California apostille office in order to obtain a California apostille.  Be sure to work with a notary with years of experience and one who will follow the notarial laws of their state.  Documents improperly notarized will be rejected by the State office.

An original passport mailed in to our Washington DC office does not require notarization.   Our US Federal notary will copy certify your passport (page with your picture and description) and obtain the apostille from the Secretary of DC.  Sending in your original passport to our Washington DC office is the recommend choice.  Please, be sure to mail in your documents by UPS/FedEX/DHL.

Once we receive your documents, we will begin to process them as soon as the same-day.  The processing time for some States make take longer.  For example, a passport notarized in the State of New York will require County Clerk authentication and State apostille.

Before mailing in your documents, we recommend that you contact us for instructions and order forms.

Apostilles 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!
