How to Apostille Documents for the UK
It’s common to need an apostille for US documents to be used in the UK. You may need personal documents such as your birth certificate, driver’s license, or divorce decree. Or perhaps you need a business document such as a Certificate of Good Standing or Certificate of Free Sale. Whatever the need, we can help you apostille documents for the UK.
Why Do You Need to Apostille Documents for the UK?
When using documents abroad, the receiving party wants to ensure the paperwork submitted is not altered in any way.
An apostille does not confirm the information on the document is correct, but it is a form that authenticates the seals and signatures of a document.
Before the Hague Convention of 1961, each country required its own authentication process. But now, all member countries (including the UK) use and accept the apostille to confirm the trueness of a document.
For countries that are not members of the Hague Convention of 1961, you must obtain an embassy legalization for your paperwork.
Where to go to Get an Apostille
The document determines where to go to get an apostille. State-issued documents require you to work with the Secretary of State to obtain the apostille. And federal documents require you to work with the US Department of State in Washington, DC.
Examples of state-issued documents are:
- Birth certificate
- Death certificate
- Marriage license
- School transcripts
- Driver’s license
Examples of federally-issued documents are:
- FBI background check
- Federal taxes
- Social security letter
