Apostille Documents to Purchase a Home in Italy

You are purchasing a home in Italy. It’s a scene from a movie or perhaps a lifelong (or newly acquired) dream. The rolling countryside that is visible from the balcony, the quaint town you will live in, or the metropolitan vibe of the city. Whatever your dream, you are making it come true. You will need to apostille several US documents to purchase a home in Italy.

What Do I Need an Apostille?

An apostille verifies the authenticity of a document. The stamp or seal that accompanies a document certifies its trueness. The Hague Convention of 1961 streamlined the process of authenticating documents by allowing member countries to recognize and accept the apostille.

For example: simply presenting a copy of your driver’s license is not enough. Italy will want to be sure the copy is authentic and not altered or belonging to someone else.

If your document is a state document, such as a driver’s license, you will receive the apostille from your state’s Secretary of State.

If you have a federal document, such as a passport, you will receive the apostille from the US Department of State in Washington, DC.

Documents Needed

Your Italian realtor or attorney will give you a comprehensive list of American documents needed to purchase a home in Italy. Here is a short list to get you started:

  • Passport
  • International health insurance
  • Ways to verify your family
    • Marriage license
    • Birth certificate of children
  • Bank Statements

As stated earlier, this is a short list to get you started. Once you have all the required US documents, you must obtain an apostille for each. 

This is where we can help you.
