Authentications: Apostille or Certification for Companies in California

The California Secretary of State provides authentication of public official signatures on documents to be used outside the United States of America. The country of destination determines whether the authentication is an Apostille or Certification.

Apostilles and Certifications only certify to the authenticity of the signature of the official who signed the document, the capacity in which that official acted, and when appropriate, the identity of the seal or stamp which the document bears. The Apostille or Certification does not validate the contents of the document.

Please fill out the short form below to view the list of public officials for which the California Secretary of State will authenticates signatures. You will also immediately see instructions on how to obtain your Apostille. Please feel free to call us with your questions!
