what is an apostille

bjbj Welcome to the apostille.us YouTube channel.
This video will focus on the apostille and legalization procedure in general. So what
is an apostille in the United States, and how to get it? Here in the states an apostille
is a separate page which is attached to the original document. The main purpose of the
apostille is to validate the authority and capacity of the official who signed the document.
It was established by the Hague Convention in 1961. In other words, apostille validates
that the public official who signed your document had the authority to do so. Why may someone
need an apostille? Whenever you have to use a document which was issued in the United
States in a foreign country, you will have to get that document apostilled or authenticated.
One of the issues with dealing with foreign governments is that not all countries accept
apostilles. Without the apostille the is no way to prove that the foreign document in
your possession is in fact a document and not just something which you printed at home
the night before. If you country is not part of the Apostille Convention, you must follow
a chain authentication procedure which will be discussed in our next video. If you are
