What Is An Apostille?


An Apostille (ah-po-steel) is a French word meaning certification.

Individuals who travel abroad to live, work, or attend school may be asked at some point to have documents Apostilled or Authenticated.
An Apostille is a certification provided under the Hague Convention of 1961 for authenticating documents for use in foreign countries.

Why Do I Need An Apostille?


If you plan on traveling to a foreign country to live, work, or attend school, you may be asked to obtain an FBI Criminal History Summary Report. This is also known as an FBI Background Check or Departmental Order. PrintScan’s systems have the ability to transmit fingerprints electronically for expedited processing of your background check. At PrintScan, we take it one step further! Many countries will request FBI background Checks to be Apostilled, which is now one of PrintScan’s services!
