Our Office of Vital Records can provide copies of life event records issued by the U.S. Department of State. These documents include birth, death, and marriage records issued overseas at a U.S. embassy or consulate.
Our Office of Authentications issues both apostilles and authentication certificates. Authenticating a document means we certify it for use overseas. If you need U.S. Department of State documents to be authenticated, please refer to the Office of Vital Records.
