Virginia Hague apostille

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

If you are traveling overseas, or sending a Virginia 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 a Virginia apostille look like?

In the State of Virginia, as in all U.S. states, an apostille is a separate page attached to the document. It is signed by the Secretary of the Commonwealth (facsimile signature) and has a gold foil Seal of the Comonwealth of Virginia. Virginia apostilles are issued in English/French/Spanish. Virginia apostilles have the name of the country of intended use (e.g. "Spain ONLY")
