We are sometimes asked: “I’m heading to two different countries; can I use one apostille for both countries?” Unfortunately, the answer is no. But the good news is that we can still help you.
Apostilles are issued specifically for one country. But we can help you obtain an apostille for each country you are visiting. Let’s say you need your birth certificate to get married in Costa Rica and immediately start a new job in Panama. You need to apostille your birth certificate for both situations.
An apostille is a form validating the authenticity of your document. Many, but not all, countries view the apostille as a uniform form of authenticity. Countries that do not accept an apostille require your paperwork to receive legalization through their embassy.
How to Obtain 2 Apostilles
It’s actually quite easy to obtain apostilles for two separate countries. But there are a couple of things you need to remember:
- You will need 2 certified copies of your document – such as your birth certificate.
- With One Source Process, you can either submit two separate orders or one order with a note stating the additional country. (See how easy we are to work with?)
- It will NOT take double the time to receive your apostilles.
But what if one country requires an apostille and the other needs embassy legalization for your document? That is no problem either, but we ask that you submit two separate orders for this situation.
If your destination country does not have English as its official language, you may need to translate the document and the apostille. We can do this for you when you place your order. Obtaining the apostille and translation together will save you both time and money.
