Certifying corporate documents for non-US countries
In order for your corporation or LLC to conduct certain business activities in non-US countries it is often required for you to file an apostillized copy of your Articles of Incorporation (for corporations) or Organization (for limited liability companies). Filing an apostille (which is French for “certification”) is the legal process to certify documents for international usage. [This is pursuant to the Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents]. Apostilles generally validate the document’s country of origin, identities of the signatories, place and dates of certification and the signatures of the authorities issuing the certificates.
Why do I need Apostille Service?
To conduct international banking your corporation will require an apostille within the country you intend to conduct business. (Other requirements may also need to be satisfied). Some countries require certified copies of your Articles of Incorporation/Organization with a gold seal. A document that has been Apostilled, authenticates those documents and makes them legal for use in the non-US country.
Apostille certificates can be obtained for:
- Certificates of Incorporation / Certificates of Organization.
- Certificates of Good Standing.
- Birth Certificates, Death Certificates, Marriage Certificates & National Identification Certificates.
