You probably sent a document to another country and was told that you needed more than a notary public stamp, you need an Apostille for your document. So, now your looking for what an Apostille is. What is an Apostille? The Apostille is a document that was designed by the Hague Convention. At that particular convention many countries are members or who are a a party to the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents ("Apostille Convention") agreed to abolish the requirement of diplomatic or consular legalisation for foreign public documents, accept this specially formatted document the "Apostille" between countries that agreed to follow this form of Legalization of a document.
What the Apostille does is to certify the authenticity of the signature, the capacity in which the person signing the document has acted, and where appropriate, the identity of the seal or stamp which the document bears. The Apostille does not relate to the content of the underlying document itself (i.e., the apostillised public document).
The Apostille can only issued by a single authorized authority, in New York State that authority is the New York Department of State, the Secretary of State Office. Before a document can receive an Apostille, it has to go thought a series of time consuming step. The procedure for each document is slightly different & can at times be frustrating & confusing if you follow the incorrect information given to you by someone with only limited knowledge of the correct procedure.
In the USA, the Apostille can take on many different styles or themes, however, the Hague Conventions specifies that the Apostille must have certain information on it. It is not necessary for the Apostille to have a ribbon, a raised seal be in color or even a gold seal to be an official Apostille. In some cases the apostille looks like it was just printed on plain paper. See a few samples of an Apostille, Certification of Authority, Notary Autentication. Once you have the Apostille no other work or vist is necessary to any consulate or Embassy, except for some commercial document for some countries.
