What is an Apostille?

In 1961, countries around the world participated in the Hague Convention to agree upon a method to exchange and verify documents across borders. One of the main authenticating documents agreed upon in this convention was an Apostille. An Apostille is an official certificate issued by the government of a country to authenticate a document for another country to accept its validity. In order for an Apostille to be recognized, both countries need to be members of the Hague Convention. 

The United States of America is a member of the Hague Convention, but before you order an Apostille through Bridge it is important that you research whether your destination country is also a member of the Hague Convention. Countries for which an Apostille is accepted will also appear in the dropdown menu at checkout.
