Apostille, Authentication, and Certification for Use Abroad

When doing business in countries abroad, you may be required to obtain authentication of corporate documents, including Articles of Incorporation, Evidence of Merger, and other filings. Harbor Compliance will hand-deliver your certification request to the State, and send you the issued document electronically for immediate use.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before you can transact business in many countries abroad, you may be required to obtain authentication of corporate documents, including Articles of Incorporation, Evidence of Merger, and other filings. This process is known as “authentication,” “legalization,” and “certification.”

Certification is a type of authentication used for those countries that do not participate in the Hague Convention. Countries that do participate in the Hague Convention use the term “apostille.”

Please visit the Hague Conference on Private International Law. Member nations accept apostille documents, whereas non-member states accept certification documents.
