The Secretary of Sate of California is the only government agency in California who issues the California Apostille. An Apostille is attached to international documents which are sent to countries who are members of the Apostille convention. Countries who are not members will receive a California Certification.

Obtaining an Apostille in CA is complicated and time consuming. First, you’ll need to know if the documents in your possession qualifies for a California Apostille. Some documents may require additional certification by the County Clerk in which the document were issued in. It’s important to contact us before mailing in your documents.
