An apostille is a form of document authentication issued for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. Apostilles are often needed for graduate programs, employment application, adoptions, extraditions, and some business transactions abroad.
Request for an apostille must be made in writing and requires the signature of the requestor. There is a $50 charge for an apostille. Notarized documents are transmitted to the Tennessee Department of State to be apostilled and then mailed to the recipient.
