Did you know that France is one of the most visited countries in the world? Some people are lucky enough to stay longer, find work, or study abroad in this fascinating country. If you are traveling to France for more than a quick visit – chances are that you will need to apostille your travel documents.
An apostille is an attached certification ensuring the authenticity of your documents. Since France is a member of the Hague Convention of 1961, apostilles are required, and you do not have to work with the French embassy to verify the paperwork.
What Documents Need an Apostille?
Your reason for the visit will determine what documents need the apostille certification. If you are studying abroad for a semester (or longer), you will most likely need an apostille for the following documents:
- School enrollment records
- High school diploma
- Student visa
- Driver’s license
If you are working while in France, you may need an apostille for these documents:
- France’s work application form
- Birth certificate
- Business license
- Proof of accommodation
The above is just a small list of documentation you may need; you will need to contact your school or job in France to determine all necessary papers.
Let One Source Process Get Your Apostilles
Each of your documents will need a separate apostille, which can be a time-consuming and confusing task. You will apply for the apostille for each document either through:
- The Secretary of State – from the state issuing the document such as your driver’s license
- The U.S. Department of State in Washington D.C. – for federal documents such as your passport
Yep, time-consuming and confusing.
But this is where we come in. At One Source Process, we have worked with every state and the federal government to apostille tons of documents.
