We will not tell you that you will receive your Apostille back in two days, that would be an untrue statement.

For example: authentications from the U.S. Department of State "Federal" will take up to 11 weeks from the time they receive it. All other states may vary, for example: Louisiana can take up to 7 weeks.

We will not tell you there is such a thing as expedited Apostille services and inflate our prices for such a service.
