How to legalize a document for Morocco?

The Apostille Convention (also known as the Treaty of Apostille, or The Hague Convention will abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents) was signed on October 5, 1961.  Now that Morocco joined the Convention the procedure of document legalization for this country is becoming much less complicated. Before you had to go through multiple steps to have your documents legalized (in many case these steps included notarization, county clerk authentication, New York Secretary of State level (foreign certificate), federal level (U.S. Department of State in Washington DC), and, finally, the embassy. Now, the legalization will be complete at the state level. The Office of New York Secretary of State will issue an apostille, and your document will be good to be shipped to Morocco. An apostille will make your document valid and legal in Morroco.
