Iowa Apostille FAQ

What is an apostille?

An apostille is a specialized certificate that is issued by the Secretary of State. Your original documents may need apostilles to confirm that they are legitimate and authentic so that they will be recognized by one of the other countries that are members of the Hague Apostille Convention.

Apostilles and certificates differ in that apostilles are used by Hague Convention signatory countries whereas certifications are used by non-signatory nations. There are two different types of public document authentications: apostille and certificate.

How to apostille documents in Iowa?

An apostille will only be granted by the Iowa Secretary of State for use in countries that are Hague Participating. All documents issued for countries that are not Hague Participants will be certified rather than apostilled.

Within the United States, apostilles are not necessary. Therefore the Secretary of State of Iowa will not grant an apostille for use in American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Iowa Secretary of State charges $5 per document. Documents may have several pages.

How long does it take to apostille documents in Iowa?

It may be challenging and time-consuming to obtain an apostille. It normally requires between two business days and a few weeks in Iowa. This applies to all documents including vital records such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, medical certificates, or divorce decrees.
