How to Obtain an iTTi Apostille

What is an Apostille?

In 1961, governments from across the world signed the Hague Convention to establish a framework for exchanging and verifying papers across international borders. Apostille was one of the primary authentication documents agreed upon under this convention. Apostille is a certificate issued by the government of a country to verify a document so that another country will recognize its validity. For an Apostille to be valid in another country, that country must also be a signatory to the Hague Convention.

The United States of America is a member of the Hague Convention, however before ordering an Apostille through Bridge, make sure your destination country is also a member of the Hague Convention. Countries that accept an Apostille will also display in the dropdown option at checkout.
