An apostille is a specialized certificate issued by a designated authority, often the Secretary of State, that confirms the authenticity of public documents. It simplifies the authentication process by certifying that the document is genuine, allowing it to be recognized and accepted in countries that are part of the Hague Apostille Convention.

An apostille is required when presenting public documents abroad to establish their validity. It eliminates the need for further verification or certification in the destination country, saving time, effort, and potential complications. Documents commonly requiring an apostille include birth certificates, marriage licenses, educational transcripts, adoption papers, and powers of attorney.
