The purpose of the Apostille Certificate was to abolish the requirements of consular/embassy legalization of the official and public documents meant for use in foreign countries (including Italy), which are the parties of the Hague Convention of 1961. Apostille aims is to make the procedure of documents legalization less complicated by verifying documents genuineness by appropriate official county, state and federal authorities in the State of the documents origin. Once certified by an apostille stamp, the documents do not require additional embassy or consular legalization.
Italy – a country of the Apostille Agreement
The Republic of Italy became a contracting country of the Apostille Treaty on February 11, 1978. From then on, any public document destined for Italy and Italian private organizations, official or legal authorities or in a Consulate of the Republic of Italy overseas, should be presented together with an Apostille Certificate in order to be recognized and accepted.
Hence, if you must give a power of attorney to a person who intends to act on your behalf in Italy, apply for the Italian citizenship, take your children who are citizens of Italy for vocations overseas, marry in Italy n or adopt a child, Apostille on such documents as birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce decree, affidavit, power of attorney, statement, consent, etc. is required. Without an Apostille Stamp your documents will be rejected.
Depending on a type of a document you may need, the Apostille procedure varies, because every particular document requires individual approach in order to be prepared as it required by International Notarial Law.
For example, a document, signed by an affiant issuing an Affidavit, a principal giving a Power of Attorney, a witness, officially signing a form or a document before a Notary Public, is usually processed in two easy steps – obtaining authentication and apostilling the document. Yet, such documents as Certificates of Vital Records, Police Clearance Certificate, FBI Background Check Certificate, corporate and business documents and legal documents stipulate understanding of which competent agencies and authorities to engage in the Apostille process.
For that reason, if you’ve never deal before with the documents preparation for Italy, it is wise to consider employing expert Apostille providers dedicated to keep you from overseeing important aspects of document apostilling.
Furthermore, if produced and prepared by notaries and Apostille Agents, who are connoisseur of the international document preparation procedure, your documents will be processed in accordance with established international directives, and will be indisputably recognized by official authorities in the territory of Italy.

Document retrieval in the USA
If you have to apostille a Birth, Marriage or Death Certificate or Divorce Decree, take into consideration that an Office of the Secretary of State will refuse to apostille the originals of these documents. It is because one should obtain so called “certified copies” (along with an Exemplification Letter in some states, including NYS) of the documents prior to processing with authentication and apostille.
At the moment, most of the Apostille services companies in the USA do not offer either document retrieving services or certified Italian translation services, leaving to you overwhelming task of documents retrieval and translating documents from English into Italian language.
