Do you need an apostille on a Birth Certificate?
If you’re planning to get married, obtain dual-citizenship, move, work, or conduct business in another country who is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, you may be asked to obtain an apostille your birth certificate. The Apostille helps authenticate your documents so the country requesting it will accept it. There are currently over 110 countries who are members of the Hague Apostille Convention.
We can apostille birth certificates issued from all 50 US States including the District of Columbia (Washington D.C.). If you were born in the USA, we can apostille your documents. We are, however, unable to apostille birth certificates issued from another country (Example: Russia, Mexico, Germany, etc…). Document issued from another country must be apostilled there. Also, if you are an American citizen born in another country, you will need to contact the US Department of State in Washington, D.C. for assistance.

If the country requesting your documents is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, then your documents will require Embassy or Consulate legalization services. Documents destined for non-Hague Apostille countries will either require two or three steps to complete. Our knowledgeable staff can provide you the breakdown in cost and processing time for these countries.
