Apostilles are required to be citizens of all countries members of the  Hague Convention. They are issued by your Secretary of State Office/Foreign Ministry/Foreign Commonwealth Office.  The Dominican Republic is part of the Hague Convention. Your official documents, like birth certificates, divorce decrees,  etc., are to be apostilled.  Also, please obtain an apostille for the Notary’s signature on your Single Status Declarations.

Your Secretary of State Office/Foreign Ministry/Foreign Commonwealth Office can be contacted by phone or online.

Obtaining an apostille is simple and fast, an apostille is an authentication issued on official documents in order to ensure their international validity.  It is issued as an attachment to the original document.  It is not the raised seal on some original documents.

THE APOSTILLE ON YOUR OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS IS MANDATORY FOR YOUR WEDDING IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC.
