Apostille Certifications

An Apostille is a form of authentication appropriate to countries which have signed the 1961 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. (A more comprehensive description of the Apostille is available at http://travel.state.gov/)

PLEASE NOTE: It is the responsibility of each cadet to obtain Apostille certifications as requested per country directive. The VMI Registrar’s Office serves only in the capacity to notarize/certify VMI issued documents only and assist cadets in the Apostille processing requirements and has no control over the timeliness of processing or results.
