How to Obtain an Apostille for India

You will need to present official documents when conducting business in India. And those documents must have an apostille. There are specific rules and regulations to follow, but we can help you with that. Our apostille services are specifically catered for use in India.

State or Federal Documents

An apostille certifies the authenticity of a document. Since India is a member of the Hague Convention of 1961 – where all member countries agree upon the apostille as a means to verify the trueness of a document – you do not need embassy legalization.

But you still need to follow the rules and regulations for getting an apostille. The type of document dictates the steps to take.

State Documents

State documents (such as birth certificates, death certificates, and probate wills) must be certified copies from the state of origin. And they must have the apostille from that state.

So, if the certified copy of your birth certificate is from California, you must obtain the apostille from the California Secretary of State.

Federal Documents

Some examples of federal documents are a US passport, immigration certifications, and an FBI background check. You must work with the US Department of State in Washington, DC, to obtain the apostille for these papers.

Rules to Obtain an Apostille for India

Here are some more ‘rules’ that you must be aware of.

  • Certain documents must be notarized before you receive the apostille, and others should never be notarized.
  • All state documents must include the court or department’s raised and/or stamped seal.
  • Federal documents must be on agency letterhead
  • and there’s more.

Plus… all documents and the attached apostille must be translated into India’s official language of Hindi.
