What is an Apostille?


An Apostille is a document issued by a government, such as the State of New Jersey, attesting to the legal status of notaries and certain other public officials who have notarized another document, such as a diploma or transcript. They are often used in transactions involving international document exchange, for the benefit of a foreign government, or to secure employment in a foreign country. An Apostille is provided if the transaction involves a country that subscribes to the Hague Treaty.
