us passport apostille
An apostille is a globally approved authentication certification that is recognized by all nations who are signatories to the 1961 Hague Convention. The U.S. Passport must go through the legalization procedure at the Embassy or Consulate of the destination nation for non-member countries.

If you are reluctant to mail your Passport to our Washington, D.C. office, you can meet with a local notary who will copy certify a color copy of your Passport.

Depending on the country, you may need to color copy each page of your Passport or just the page with your picture. In most cases, it’s just the picture & signature. Be sure to double-check with the requesting country in order to avoid any delays or additional costs.

It’s important to work with a professional notary with years of experience and one who will follow the notarial rules and guidelines in their State. For example, in the State of California, a California Copy Certification by Document Custodian form will be used by the Notary. In other States, they will have similar forms.

US Passport Apostille FAQ

US Passport Apostille
US Passport Apostille

What is required for passport apostille?

If you need to apostille your US passport you can send us a copy of your original passport with a specified wording to be written at the bottom:

“I do hereby attest that this is a true and correct photocopy of my US Passport.”

{Signed and dated}

You have the option of having this document notarized, or you may email it directly to us, and we'll do it for you.

Please make sure you use a notary who is familiar with this process if you have the copy of your passport notarized before sending it to us. The notary must use the proper wording (some states require different acknowledgment statements), it must be signed and stamped, and it must include their registration number and expiration date.

Why do I need to apostille my passport?

For example, you will need to apostille your passport if you open a Swiss bank account by mail, because the bank will not see the original of your passport. The people who process your application in the back office will have to check that the copy is correct. To determine whether a passport copy is appropriate to create an account, each bank has developed its own method. Most banks demand that the document bears an apostille, while some may accept a passport copy that has been authenticated (legalized, certified) by a notary public.

Where can I get an apostille?

Each country party to the Hague Convention designates an authority within its territory that can issue apostilles. For example, in the USA, it is the office of the State’s Secretary. In practice, you should contact a notary to get an apostille. Please note that some notaries may not be familiar with this procedure – they may propose you an ersatz that they are more familiar with. To escape any problems you may contact us and we can eagerly answer all of your questions.We offer background check locations in all 50 states. In most cases, there is more than one location available in each state for your service of need.

What if the country I am adopting from is not a part of the Hague Apostille Convention?

Your documents may need additional authentication by the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., as well as legalization through the Embassy or Consulate office if the nation requesting your FBI Background Check Apostille is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention. Your Department of State and legalization requests can be immediately handled by our D.C. staff.

  • 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!
