Please email us for the processing time. 
U.S. Department of State: the processing time for federal apostilles and authentication certificates (including FBI, 6166 U.S. Residency certifications, etc.) is currently 8-12 weeks. There is no expedited or walk-in service.  



notary-arizona The Arizona Secretary of State’s office provides Hague apostilles for documents that are to be sent to, or used in, a foreign country. An Arizona apostille verifies that the notary public is authorized to provide the notarization and that he/she has done so in accordance with the Arizona laws.  Based on experience, there are some common errors that can cause the notarized documents to be rejected for Arizona apostilles. The main requirement is that your document must be properly notarized according to Arizona statutes.
