An apostille is needed in order to use the United States issued documents in other countries around the world.
If your document must be authenticated or “legalized” all documents must be notarized by a notary public in order to be authenticated and legalized, or to receive apostille except official certified government-issued documents. The procedures can vary, depending on the country where the document will be used.
For legalization of documents to use in countries that are not part of The Hague Legalization Convention, the document must be submitted to the State Secretary of State. After the State Secretary of State has placed a seal on the document, it can then be sent to Smart Visas to process with the US Department of State and the Embassy of the destination country
Please check with your Embassy or Consulate what are their requirements and submit all your documents to Smart Visas to be submitted at the designated office.
