A Notary Public Cannot Issue an Apostille


In the United States, and indeed in the state of California, a Notary Public is a person who has been given authority by the government to act as a witness to a signature- that means, the notary will verify the identity of an individual, then have that person sign their signature to a document.

A notary then completes a written statement indicating the person signed that document and their identity was verified.

A Notary Public provides no additional services in their capacity authorized by the government. A notary cannot create their own apostille, issue an apostille nor certify any document with an Apostille, in San Francisco or any county in California.

To clarify, the process of validating a document and certifying it's validity for international use is what an Apostille certificate is for, and only the office of the Secretary of State of the state of California issues the Apostille. A Notary Public is not an employee of the state government, and a notary public does not issue an Apostille certificate.

If you require an international verification certificate for your documents, for use overseas (an Apostille), then the only agency to obtain the Apostille from is the Secretary of State. Clearly, a Notary Public is not the person nor office for official authentication of a document.

California Apostille Services has been serving businesses and individuals in the greater Bay Area since 2003. We are conveniently located in downtown Financial District of San Francisco, and can act on your behalf to obtain the official Apostille from the Secretary of State.
