  • We have used a few different process servers and no one has been as easy to use as Aaapostille. They are making complicated issues easy to understand and communicate every step of the way. Svetlana has been very patient answering lots of stupid questions and made us feel comfortable and safe. The whole process was a breeze: we simply uploaded our docs online and then received them apostille in the mail in 5 days. No need to understand these complicated processes when you guys do it for us :) Thanks a lot!

  • We use Aaapostille for all our clients who need this service — Svetlana, Alex and their team are real professionals, very patient and never complain about our last minute super urgent requests (which are most of them :) We’re happy for your low rates, so we don’t have to overcharge our clients. Also, dealing with lots of consular legalisation orders, we got burned many times in the past with other services, who had no idea of particulars of consulate processing, which Aaapostile knows everything about!

  • Thanks for getting everything done so quickly! My deadline for submitting everything for a Postdoc program in Italy was fast approaching, and I was a nervous wreck with all other apostille websites giving me a runaround with processing times and complicated terms. It's really not a topic you’d want to spend your time on making last minute preparations. Very easy instructions and process, and real live people on the other end — so rare nowadays! Special thanks to Dimitri, who responded on a weekend, saving me a day!
