To Order Same Day
Texas Apostille Services

Step 1

We only need three things from you to start the expedited Texas apostille criminal records check report service process.

First, email, mail, or drop off your original Texas criminal records check report at our office. 

The Texas Secretary of State will only accept and issue apostille certificates and authentication certificates on original Texas criminal records check reports that are physically presented to them.

When we say an “original criminal records check report” this means you have an original criminal records check report that you ordered and downloaded from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).

If you have a non-DPS criminal background check report issued from a Texas county sheriff’s or city police department those reports must also be properly notarized by a Texas notary public before they can be apostilled or authenticated. 

Apostille Texas only apostilles criminal records check reports at the state government level for the State of Texas but if the country you’re sending your documents to is not a member nation of the 1961 Hague Convention you will need to go through two more legal document filing steps. We can assist you with these two additional steps even if we don’t obtain the state level authentication certificate for you from a non-Texas state.

The second step is to rush file your criminal records check report at the United States Department of State (USDOS) office in Washington D.C but this step can only be done after you have been issued a state level authentication certificate by one of the fifty state secretary of state offices in the United States.

The third step is to rush file your criminal records check report with the foreign country embassy of where your documents are being submitted to in Washington D.C. This final document legalization step can only be done after you have been issued both a state and federal authentication certification on your U.S criminal records check report.


Step 2

Second email, mail, or drop off at our office a prepaid FedEx or UPS return shipping envelope/label that you can create and purchase online at or without needing to create or have an existing account set up with them. You can also visit any UPS Store or FedEx Office location to purchase a prepaid shipping label as well. 

Yes, you can use the United States Postal Service but we highly recommend that you don’t because they lose things constantly (potentially your criminal records check) and are completely unreliable and slow.

The reason we require a prepaid return shipping envelope/label is so we can mail your documents back to you or to wherever and whomever in the world that you want your documents shipped to. 

If it’s an international shipment (USA to another foreign country) please also provide us with a invoice that shipping companies (FedEx, UPS, USPS) sometimes will require you to include whenever you ship documents or packages internationally to certain countries. If you or someone on your behalf will be returning to our office the following business day to pick up your apostilled or authenticated documents you of course won’t need to provide us with a shipping label.

For the fastest possible turnaround time, we can hand deliver your documents right to your home, office, business or hotel the very same day that we apostilled or authenticated them for an additional courier fee. The courier cost will depend on what city and zip code in Texas you need us to travel to. This is for situations where you don’t have the time to travel back to our office to pick your documents up or you don’t want your documents mailed anywhere.

                                                                                On the prepaid return shipping label
                                                                                  that you provide us you can list the
                                                                                    from senders mailing address as:

Apostille Texas
108 Wild Basin Rd S, Ste 250
Austin, TX 78746

Step 3

Third, you will need to download, sign, and email, mail, or drop off at our office our rush Texas apostille service order form that can be instantly downloaded by clicking on the Texas apostille order form button below.

If you will be dropping your documents off at our Austin, Texas office location in person you must bring this completed Texas apostille order form in with you along with any documents that you want us to rush apostille or authenticate for you or for your company.

When you arrive at our office walk up to our front lobby receptionist desk area and tell them that you have some documents to dropoff for Apostille Texas. Detailed directions and pictures of our office and office building are on our contact us page as well for you to view.

Please also understand your documents will not and cannot be apostilled or authenticated onsite at our office so this isn’t walk-in service.

The only legal and government entity in Texas that can issue apostille and authentication certificates is the Texas Secretary of State office in Austin, TX which is where we will rush file your Texas criminal records check at on your behalf.

We must receive your Texas criminal records check by mail or dropped off at our office by noon CST Monday-Friday (excluding all bank and government holidays) to be able to provide you with same day Texas apostille services. If we receive your Texas criminal records check after that cutoff time don’t worry we’ll simply attempt to file it on the next business day. 

Lastly, we do not have these Texas apostille order forms available at our front desk receptionist area.

So if you choose to drop your documents off at our office please make sure to print out and bring this Texas apostille order form in with you or alternatively you can email us the completed Texas apostille order form ahead of time.
