Arizona

If you are travelling overseas, or sending Arizona documents for use in a foreign country, you may be required to have the documents certified or apostilled by Arizona Secretary of State. An “apostille” or a certificate of “authentication” is issued to certify an Arizona notary public, court clerk, or state document custodian to a foreign country. Apostilles have been adopted internationally by the Hague Convention as a uniform way of verifying documents sent between countries.
