Apostille Diploma

One of the most common document we can apostille is an education diploma.

In order to apostille a diploma, it must be signed and notarized by the school’s registrar.  The registrar or another official at the school (Example: Principal) will attest to the validity of the diploma ensuring that if anybody calls the school, the diploma will be verified.

A diploma cannot be signed and notarized by just anybody.  Only the official from the school can attest to its authenticity and validity.  If the school does not have a notary public on staff, a traveling notary can visit the school and meet with the registrar.

Note: The reason why you want the diploma attested by the school is because you want an official from the school to verify your degree in case someone calls with questions.

Every school has procedures in place on how to notarize a diploma. Some schools will ask for you to mail in the original diploma while another will certify a color copy.  We recommend that you contact the school and find out what their procedures are before doing anything . If your school is having difficulty understanding your request, you can ask the school to contact us for instructions.

Once your diploma has been signed and notarized, the next step is to mail it in to our office for processing.

The processing time and cost depends on the State the degree has been notarized in and the country requesting the degree. For example, a degree notarized in California and for Spain is going to cost less than a degree notarized in New York and for Qatar.  Our staff can provide you the cost and processing time.

The most common countries we attest diplomas are for: South Korea, China, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and more!
