Employment Verification Apostille
An Employment Verification Letter, also known as a letter of employment or proof of income letter, is a legal document used to confirm a prior or current employee's income and job history. As an employer’s legal acknowledgment of an employee’s current or previous employment, an Employment Verification Letter Apostille is required when presenting this legal document in foreign countries.
An Employment Verification Letter may also be referred to as:
Proof of Employment Letter
Income Verification Letter
Employment Confirmation Letter
Salary Verification Letter
Work Verification Letter
Employment Verification Letter Apostille Process
Employment Verification Letters issued within the United States must be notarized by a licensed notary public. The Employment Verification Letter must then be Apostilled or authenticated prior to being used abroad.
If the Employment Verification Letter is being presented in a country that’s a member of the Hague Convention of 1961, then an Employment Verification Letter Apostille can be used. If the letter is being presented in a country that’s NOT a member of the Hague Convention of 1961, then the Embassy/Consulate Legalization document authentication process must be used.
Embassy/Consulate Legalization is a much more involved document authentication process that requires additional steps. Apostilles and Embassy/Consulate Legalizations should only be processed by someone who is familiar with document authentication.
Employment Verification Letters must be printed on corporate letterhead, signed, and notarized by the employer in order to be Apostilled. A Remote Online Notary can be used by the employer if it does not have a notary on staff. Using a Remote Online Notary is a very safe and convenient way to notarize important legal documents.
