An Apostille is a one page document certifying the authenticity of a document. It is issued by the Secretary of State and is embossed with the apostille stamp - the Great Seal of a State. Any country which is a signatory of the 1961 Hague Convention recognizes an apostille as a certificate of authenticity of the document. The US has been a member of the Hague Convention since October 15, 1981.
Embassy legalization is an alternative method of authenticating a document, used for countries that are not members of the Hague Convention. Such countries do not accept or recognize an apostille as a certificate of authenticity for US public documents. Instead, the embassy, consular or diplomatic representative of the country in the United States normally deals with the legalization of American documents. Read more »
In most cases an Embassy Legalization will require the document to be authenticated by the notary, followed by legalization from the Secretary of State, the US State Department and the embassy of the foreign country to which the document will be sent. See the next section for how you can determine whether your documents would require an Apostille or an Embassy Legalization. You can also speak to one of our experts for further information about document legalization. « Show Less
