Does an Apostille Expire?

The answer is NO. An apostille does NOT have an expiration date.

However, the majority of countries that ask for an apostille on your documents may demand that both the documents and the apostille be issued within a specific amount of time. For instance, we've heard that the majority of nations want the FBI background check and an apostille to have been issued within the last 90 days. Some nations might ask for them within the first 30 days.

To find out how old your documents can be and how recently the apostille should be issued, kindly double-check with the nation making the request. For instance, if a California birth certificate requires an apostille, you should inquire as to how current the apostille should be and how old the birth certificate might be. Both the birth certificate and the apostille must have been issued within the last 30 days if the answer is 30 days for both.

Background checks, in our opinion, have the biggest limitations.

Additionally, several States place limitations on the documents' age. Wisconsin and Virginia, for instance, both have 12 months. Five years in Texas. We advise you to get in touch with us so we can examine your paperwork.

Apostilles may be challenging. Don't trust this technique to untrained workers or unqualified individuals who are unaware of the Apostille procedure and the particular needs of several countries. Your paperwork can be turned down, which would cost you time and money. Be awared!
