A Florida apostille is an official notarization of a business document from the Florida Department of State. It acknowledges that the Department of State has authorized the document in question. A corporation or LLC may need an apostille in order to demonstrate to an official agency or foreign government that the business is registered and in good standing in the State of Florida.
To obtain a Florida apostille, you must submit a cover letter requesting the apostille to the Department of State. The cover letter must include the name of the country that is requesting the apostille.
You must include a check or money order with the appropriate fee. The Department of State charges $10 per notarized document for an apostille certification.
Send the request, with fee, to:
Department of State
Division of Corporations
PO Box 6800
Tallahassee, FL 32314-6800
Requests are generally processed within five business days after the request has been received.
