Montana Hague apostille

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

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

In the State of Montana, as in all U.S. states, an apostille is a separate page attached to the document by staples. It is signed by the Montana Secretary of State (facsimile signature) and has a black-and-white Great Seal of the State of Montana.
