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.

Weekly Apostille Talk by Richard M. Johnston

Apostille Frequently Asked QuestionsThe question for this week is, “Do my legal documents require U.S. Department of State and/or Embassy Consulate Legalization?”

Countries who are members of the Hague Apostille Convention rarely require Embassy or Consulate Legalization.  The only exception to this rule is for certain documents going to India, Ecuador, Italy, and Spain.

We know from experience that a power of attorney notarized in California and destined for India will require Indian Embassy or Consulate legalization.  The same is true for a Social Security Income and Benefits Statement (SSA) for Ecuador.  Italy and Spain require certain documents to be legalized (Apostille FBI background check w/translation) to be submitted with additional paperwork to the local Consulate office.  Keep in mind that some countries have several consulate offices throughout the United States.  If you are planning to move, obtain dual citizenship, or study in Italy or Spain, you should contact the local Consulate for more information.

For all other documents destined for member countries, all you will need is the State apostille.  For U.S. Federal Government documents, your document will need an apostille from the Secretary of D.C. or the U.S. Department of State.  These documents include FBI background checks, Social Security documents, FDA, USDA, and other documents issued by the U.S. Federal Government.

For countries who are NOT members of the Hague Apostille Convention, there are additional authentication and legalization steps that must be completed before the country requesting your documents will accept them.  For example, if you are planning to work in Dubai, the country of the United Arab Emirates will request your diploma to be authenticated by the State, U.S. Department of State, and the UAE Embassy in Washington, D.C.  There are also additional requirements that must be met at the Embassy level. You may be asked to provide a copy of your passport, power of attorney letter, diploma accreditation certification, etc…

Document Attestation Certification

Some countries only require the State certification and Embassy/Consulate legalization.  For example, Brazil, Chile, Guatemala, Indonesia, etc… do not require U.S. Department of State certification. For example, for the country of Brazil, they only require the State certification and Consulate legalization.

Before mailing in your documents, please call us for a good faith estimate and processing time.  With office spanning six states and the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.) we have the experience and knowledge to process your documents quickly saving you time and money.

Apostille San Francisco CA

Apostille San Francisco CASeveral years ago, the California Secretary of State closed their offices in San Francisco.  This difficult decision made it very challenging for businesses and residents to have their documents authenticated for international use.  Subsequently, several Apostille service providers in San Francisco either closed their businesses/websites, limited their resources, increased their prices, and delayed the same-day processing promise.

Currently, the California Secretary of State has two offices.  The main office is in Sacramento and their branch office is in Los Angeles.  Our California Apostille service is located in Los Angeles County and 15 minutes away from the Secretary of State’s office in Downtown Los Angeles.

Unlike most of our competitors, we hand-deliver and pick-up documents daily from the California Secretary of State’s office in Downtown Los Angeles.  This ensures that your documents will be processed correctly and the same-day it’s received.  Once complete, your documents will arrive the next business morning by UPS to your location in San Francisco.

We’ve made the process of obtaining an Apostille very easy.  Simply print-out our Order Form and Credit Card Authorization Form and mail your original or certified documents to our office.  You can always find a local UPS or FedEx shipping store near you and most will have a notary on staff.  There are also independent shipping stores who can help notarize and ship your documents to our office. We recommend that you ship your documents by UPS, FedEx or USPS Priority Mail.
