California Apostille Services in San Francisco Downtown

San Francisco Apostille CaliforniaMany years ago, we realized that providing California Apostille Services in San Francisco was an important step in building a solid relationship with the community.  Our main objective has always been to provide the best possible service at a very reasonable rate.  The cost for our Apostille service in San Francisco is as low as $75 dollars each.  We even provide FedEx overnight shipping at no additional cost.

In additional to our California Apostille Services, we also provide consulate legalization in San Francisco.  For example, documents going to Brazil will also require Consulate legalization.  The first step in authenticating your documents is to present them to the California Secretary of State’s office.  Depending on the country requesting your documents, the State will either attach an apostille or a certificate.  An apostille is issued for countries who are members of the Apostille Convention.  A certificate is issued for countries who are not members of the Hague Apostille Convention (Example: Brazil, China, Chile, Guatemala, etc..).

What makes our service better is that we genuinely care for our clients.  We answer calls Monday-Saturday from 8am to 7pm. Also, online live chat service is available throughout the day.   In California, we have an office in San Francisco and another in Los Angeles – Burbank.

Why Choose Us? We have the experience and knowledge to apostille and certify your documents quickly. We have a long roster of corporate clients who have used our services from the San Francisco Bay area over the years.  Many technology companies expanding to other countries rely on us to apostille and certify their documents quickly. The California Secretary of State has also recommended our services to clients who need additional assistants.

The three most common documents we apostille from our San Francisco offices are birth certificates, death certificates, and power of attorney documents.   Feel free to stop-by Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm to drop-off your documents with our receptionist.  Our office is closed on the weekend but we do provide phone support on Saturday.

California Apostille Services / San Francisco

San Francisco Apostille California

Several years ago, the Secretary of State in San Francisco closed their offices and moved their operations to Los Angeles and Sacramento.

This difficult closure placed a lot of pressure on California Apostille Services in the area because they had to drive to Sacramento to process their clients documents.  Some apostille companies tried to survive by lowering their prices while others closed their offices or simply turned off their websites.

Our office in San Francisco still serves to local community.  As the leader in document authentication services, we are a registered service provider with the California Secretary of State – Authentications, Apostilles, and Certificates.

San Francisco

We make getting an Apostille in San Francisco easy!

Depending on the documents you have, simply dropping them off at a UPS, FedEx or the USPS with our order form is all you need to do in order to receive your California Apostille. Documents received at our office before noon are processed the same day and returned to you the next business morning by FedEx.

Certified originals signed by the San Francisco County clerk are automatically eligible for an Apostille.  Some documents do require you or someone you know in California to meet with a local notary to notarize the signature on the documents.  These documents include a Power of Attorney, Affidavit, Business Agreements, Articles of Incorporation, etc…  School Diplomas and transcripts require a notary to fill out a document called a “California Copy Certification by Document Custodian” which we can simply email to you.  Please call us before you mail-in your documents for verification.

The California Secretary of State has two offices in California.  One is in Los Angeles where our office is located, and the other is in Sacramento.   Working with any Apostille service located in San Francisco will cost you more time and money to complete because there are NO Secretary of State offices in San Francisco.  The San Francisco Secretary of State Office has been closed for many years. Be sure to work with a company located close to the Office of the Secretary of State!

What makes our service unique is that we are also California notaries commissioned by the California Secretary of State.  This  ensures that no time is wasted on documents which have been notarized incorrectly.

Our office is located 15 minutes away from Downtown Los Angeles allowing us the opportunity to authenticate your documents the same day we receive them.  Our clients include individuals, small business, attorney, corporations who need to conduct business in a country who is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention.

We accept all four major credit cards including personal and business check, cashier’s check, money order, and Paypal.  There is no reason to pay us in advance.  We’ll call you once we receive your documents for payment and process your credit card over the phone.
