How does an
A USA apostille certificate will be issued by one of the fifty U.S states or by the U.S Department of State and it will be an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper that will be attached to your document either by a staple or a grommet.
It is NOT a stamp as in what a notary public stamp would look like nor is it some kind of raised seal. Your apostille certificate is printed onto regular printer paper on the letterhead of whatever secretary of state office issues it.
