Apostled Documents

I was wondering if these are a requirement. A friend of my wife from georgia said not needed..I am planning on sending original notarized translated documents for birth, marriage, divorce, etc...Apostle is not cheap it's like 60 lari or 40 American dollars per document..

Apostle actually does what??

I haven't read where its required by NVC but have read on these forums that people do send apostled documents..

Advice appreciated

Thx

No requirement to notarize. A notary verifys the signature on a document & not the content. Type Translation in the search block to see example of requirement. Anyone fluent in both languages can do the work.

When they translate they do notary... I still confused as to why apostle is needed??

If I sent an original document that was translated and notary..

An apostille requirement varies country to country and with the source of teh document. For example, we will be doing the final step in Costa Rica, and my wife was born in Mexico, so the American consulate in CR absolutely requires that an apostille be attached to her Mexican birth certificate.

And no, an apostille has nothing to do with a notary or a translation--a notary verifies the authenticity of a signature while an apostille verifies the authenticity of a document.

So NVC doesn't require apostille just the consulate.. I will email consulate Georgia and ask if the need any Apostilled documents..
