What Does Apostille Mean?

By IncNow | Published July 14, 2020

Apostilled documents have a physically-applied gold seal. Most likely, you will need the original sent to you. We can email it followed by Global Priority Mail or send it to you by International FedEx.

What Does Apostille Mean, Exactly?

An Apostilled Certified Copy from the Secretary of State is required by certain countries which accept the terms of the Hague Convention’s international treaty. For example, to do business in Spain, rather than have a Certified Copy of the Delaware LLC’s Certificate of Formation legalized by filing a Certified Copy with the US Department of State and Spain’s consulate, the treaty empowers Delaware to issue the document directly, which saves time and money and does not require separate approval from the US Government.

Can an Apostilled Certified Copy Be Sent By Email?

Apostilled documents have a physically-applied gold seal. Most likely, you will need the original sent to you. Standard certified copies are sent with a digital seal, so they can be sent by email and constitute an original. We can email the Apostilled documents followed by Global Priority Mail or send it to you by International FedEx.
