1. What is an Apostille?
An Apostille is a form of certification set out in the 1961 Hague Convention, to which the United States became a subscriber in 1981. It is a form of numbered fields, which allows the data to be understood by the receiving country regardless of the official language of the issuing country.
2. What does an Apostille do?
The object of the Apostille is to "abolish the requirement of diplomatic or consular legalization for foreign public documents". The completed Apostille certifies the authenticity of the signature, the capacity in which the person signing the document has acted, and identifies the seal/stamp which the document bears.
3. Who issues Apostilles?
The Secretary of State of Texas may issue an Apostille on documents issued by persons on file with this agency, including county clerks, notaries public, statewide officials. Recently issued birth/death certificates issued by local registrars must have been issued within the past three (3) years in order for the Secretary of State to issue an Apostille. The competent authority for issuance of Apostilles on documents issued by the federal government are the clerks of the federal courts.
4. What kind of documents do I need an Apostille for?
The Apostille may be obtained to transmit public documents executed in one subscribing country to another subscribing country wherein the documents need to be produced. The Hague Convention defines 'public documents' as:
1. those originating in a court, clerk of a court, public prosecutor or process server,
2. administrative documents,
3. notarial acts,
4. official certificates placed on documents
These types of 'public documents' would include birth/death certificates, marriage licenses, divorce decrees, school transcripts and diplomas/degrees, among others.
I found Pro Courier Service online when I learned that the Houston Consulate had rejected a vital document form that I had submitted for authentication. I had to start the entire process all over again, with less than a month to go before my current visa ran out. Duane arranged a courier in Dallas to get a new set of original documents, got them authenticated in Austin, and had them overnighted to the visa agency within 36 hours of my initial phone conversation with him...He responded promptly and professionally to all my communications and immediately anticipated a problem that would have caused my documents to be rejected a second time.
