How will the federal apostille certificate
or federal authentication certificate be
attached to my documents?
Your successfully filed document will come back to you from the United States Department of State office with an 8 ½ x 11 apostille certification or authentication certification grommeted to it.
Please be aware that if the grommet comes out of your federal apostille certificate or federal authentication certificate the foreign government or entity that requested and required you to get this done could possibly reject your documents when you try to file and submit it
So if you have to scan and email the documents please make sure to carefully flip back the page with the certificate attached to it and don’t take out the grommet when you do the scan.
