Non-Hague Apostille Convention List

The Hague Apostille Convention of October 5, 1961

Generally documents from the United States that are to be presented to countries (sometimes referred to as states) that do not belong and adhere to the Hague Apostille Convention usually require:

  • Secretary of State Apostille
  • United States Department of State Apostille
  • Embassy Legalization

ALL documents written in a foreign language that require a U.S. Department of State Authentication must be accompanied by a Certified Translation when presented to the U.S. Department of State.

We can only assist with documents that originate from the United States.

  • Some states Apostilles' are issued by the Lieutenant Governor or Secretary of the Commonwealth instead of the Secretary of State.
  • Some Federal Documents can be Apostilled by the Clerk of the Court (an authorized Competent Authority).
