Ohio Hague apostille

Do you need Hague apostilles for your Ohio documents? We provide Apostille and Embassy legalization services in the State of Ohio and nationwide, for documents intended for international use.  

If you are traveling overseas, or sending an Ohio document for use in a foreign country, you may be required to have the document apostilled or legalized. Hague apostilles have been adopted internationally as a uniform way of verifying documents sent between countries.

What does an Ohio apostille look like?

In the State of Ohio, as in all U.S. states, an apostille is a separate page attached to the document with a staple. It is signed by the Ohio Secretary of State (facsimile signature) and has the Seal of the Secretary of State of State of Ohio.
