Obtaining an Apostille for the Dominican Republic



The Dominican Republic is a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention, which requires an apostille from the Secretary of State for any official document headed for this nation.


The Hague Apostille Convention's goal is to simplify the process of "authenticating" documents for global acceptance. An apostille verifies the signature of the official who signed your documents (for example, a state official, a county clerk, a notary public, or a judge from the Superior Court).


The most common documents we can apostille for Dominican Republic are:

  • Birth Certificates

  • Marriage Certificates

There is no margin for error with the Authentication or Apostille process. If mistakes are made, both your time and money will be wasted and you'll have to start all over again.
