US Passport Apostille

Do you need to apostille your US Passport?

A passport issued by the US Federal Government can be apostilled through our Washington DC office.  In order to apostille this document, you will need to mail in the original passport to our Washington DC office.  Please, do not send copies of your passport as we will need to see the original.

Once we receive your original passport, our notary will copy certify and obtain the apostille from the Secretary of DC.  Please note that your passport will not be damaged in the process.  The apostille will be attached to a color copy of the passport and not the original passport.  You can see an example of an apostille issued by the Secretary of DC below.

If you are outside of the USA, do NOT mail your original passport to our office.  You can visit the local US Embassy or US Consulate who will assist you in notarizing a true copy of your passport.  Once it has been notarized at the US Embassy or US Consulate office, go ahead and mail in your documents to our DC office for processing.

Here is an example of an apostille issued by the Secretary of DC:

Apostilles can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
