Apostille Massachusetts


In 1994, Mexico signed and ratified the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. The purpose of this Convention is to simplify the processes required for a particular country to recognize the official documents issued by another country, by means of apostille certification.

Public documents and certificates that are issued in one of the countries that are signatories to the above Convention, and which bear the apostille stamp, are valid for presentation in Mexico, without the need for additional verification/certification by the diplomatic/consular representative at the Embassy of Mexico.

We obtain apostilles for use in Mexico from all U.S. States.

Please select the state where your document was issued, signed, certified, or notarized

Important! Your document has to be apostilled in the state where it was issued (certified, notarized), e.g. if you were born in California, your birth certificate has to be apostilled in California, your power of attorney notarized by a Maine notary public will need a Maine apostille, etc.
