5-Star Apostille Service in since 1998

Andrew Swinghamer
We have used a few different process servers and no one has been as easy to use as Apostillus. 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!
Michael Fenton
We use Apostillus 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 Apostillus knows everything about!
Synthia Smyth
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!
Eric Linden
The quality and timeliness of the work was superb. They are very knowledge about the process, and everything was seamless after submitting the initial online forms. Very pleased with the overall process. I highly recommend their services.
Tom Ford

Svetlana and the ApostillUS team were incredibly fast to respond. Very professional service and attention to clients. Svetlana went above and beyond to complete my requested service to apostille original documents with a very short time frame, and provided helpful information and updates along the way. Working with ApostillUS removed all the stress of legalizing and gathering apostilles on original documents for international use.

Richard Higgins
I wish I could raise his 5 stars to 100 or maybe to 1000!
We have been using his services for many years and always been very accommodating and always in timely manner.
Prices are very reasonable as well but most importantly is you know you are in the best hands to do any translation job or apostille job with the most accommodating and professional service.
My wife and I emailed Gianluca Saturday morning A TON of documents and we had it all ready by Monday afternoon 🙏🙏🙏 Svetlana has donated her entire weekend to help us in this very complicated and very rushed project!

We can’t be thankful enough, we are out of words and really can’t think (yet) about the best way to say thank you 😊 truly amazing human being, thank you so very much!!!

Patricia Palmer

Had a great experience with ApostillUS. I needed Apostille for my NY marriage certificate and they delivered it fast with straight forward communication that did not leave me asking any additional questions. Price was fair and even better then many other services out there. Highly recommend them for tour apostille needs.

An apostille is a certificate of authenticity, issued by the Secretary of State from the state in which the document is produced. The certificate is a seal that authenticates a document for use in any country that recognizes it.

Apostilles are required by some countries for documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and death certificates. For example, if you need a birth certificate for your child to enroll in school in another country, the school may require an apostille.
The process for getting an apostille service in Rhode Island is quite easy, but it can take a lot of time. It is important to choose a reliable and trustworthy service provider because they will need to scan and send your documents to the state office.

Apostille and Authentication process in Rhode Island.

In Rhode Island, the process for obtaining an apostille is pretty straightforward:

  1. Get the original document(s) that need to be apostilled.
  2. Fill out and complete the request form.
  3. Prepare an envelope with all papers required including a cover letter.

Alex Khodorkovsky
Founder & CEO,
Before we get into a detailed answer to all the questions about obtaining an apostille in the state of Rhode Island, let's highlight one question. Should you make the apostille yourself or have an agency like ApostillUS do it for you?
The first thing you should understand is that you can get an apostille yourself without any help from expediting companies. By doing so, you will save money - an Apostille stamp on your own documents from the Secretary of State's office will cost you just $20.00 per apostille plus $6.00 for each different signature. So why use the service?
Based on our company's experience (and we have been in this apostille business since 1988), I would highlight 3 key points:

  • The first pointis to save time. The state of Rhode Island has a fairly clear list of requirements for both the document being apostilled and the notarial certification on the document. You have to check all the nuances and make sure everything is okay. So you need time to research the requirements, as well as to check the documents.
  • The second pointis the timing of obtaining an apostille. Sometimes a document needs to be done urgently. An apostille can be obtained on the same day on a walk-in basis. If you don't have time to do it - companies like ours come to assist. That's especially true if you are in another state.
  • The third point is if you have a large package of documents. Verification and preparation can be a real headache. Companies like ApostillUS save you from it.

We try to keep prices as competitive as possible. Our average fee is $50 per document, we think that's fair considering our experience and accumulated knowledge.

Rhode Island Apostille FAQ.

What is an apostille?

An apostille, or official government certification, is required for documents to be accepted and presented in other countries that are signatories to the 1961 Hague Convention. These documents can include any vital records, vehicle titles, certificates of incorporation and origin, and academic records.

What is the difference between apostilles and certifications?

The difference between apostilles and certifications is that apostilles are used by countries participating in the Hague Convention when certifications are used by countries that do not participate. Apostilles and certificates are two different sorts of public document authentications.

In order for documents to be accepted and presented in other countries that are signatories to the 1961 Hague Convention, they must have an apostille, which is a certificate officially granted by the government. These documents can include any vital records, car titles, certificates of incorporation and origin, hiring documents, company invoices, and any academic records.

Why do I need to apostille my documents in Rhode Island?

You may need to apostille your documents if you are:
  • obtaining an ownership of a property
  • working in abroad
  • studying in abroad
  • claiming an inheritance
  • applying for divorce
  • getting married
or for many other purposes in abroad.

How to apostille documents in Rhode Island?

The apostille certification simply attests to the authenticity of the signature and the legal capacity of the signer of the public document. The content of the official document to which an apostille relates is not certified.

The State of Rhode Island cannot apostille documents issued by another state. The same issuing state must apostille them. Documents issued by the federal government for people or businesses in Rhode Island require an apostille, which must be obtained through the U.S. Department of State.

The Secretary of State of Rhode Island will only issue an apostille for use in Hague Participating Countries. All documents issued for countries that are not members of the Hague Convention are required to be certified rather than apostilled. Rhode Island Secretary of State charges $5 fee per document. A document can contain multiple pages.

You should be informed that out-of-state vital records or court documents must be submitted to the issuing state. It is important that out-of-state school transcripts are required to be apostilled by the state in which the school is located.
