Apostille for Naturalization Documents

Harry Otto from White Plains Apostille and Mobile Notary Shares Insight on Obtaining Apostille for Naturalization Documents or Replacements for Lost Copies

As an expert in document authentication, Harry Otto of White Plains Apostille and Mobile Notary offers valuable information for those seeking Apostille services for naturalization documents or needing to obtain replacements for lost copies.

  1. Original Documents:
  • Typically required for Apostille through the U.S. Department of State
  • If originals are unavailable, some countries may accept authenticated copies
  1. Authentication Process:
  • For accepted countries, we can make a laser copy and obtain a New York State Apostille
  • This process is generally much faster than federal Apostille – even the very same day with our same-day service option.
  1. Obtaining Copies of Naturalization Documents:
  • Visit a USCIS field office
  • Locations:
    a) Federal Plaza in New York City
    b) Great news for local residents: There’s a convenient local office at 40 South Main St. in Port Chester, NY 10573
  • This local option means you don’t have to travel to Federal Plaza in New York City
  • Appointments are required for both locations
  • Schedule online at: https://my.uscis.gov/en/appointment/v2
  1. Apostille Validity (Expiration):
  • Unlike FBI background checks, Apostilles do not typically expire
  • No need for regular renewals as with some time-sensitive documents
  1. Streamlining the Process:
  • Harry suggests sending White Plains Apostille uploads of the instructions you’re working from
  • This allows him to review the language and determine if the country will accept an authenticated copy
  • If accepted, the process can be much easier and faster through New York State, rather than Washington DC
  • Always share the instructions and a copy of the naturalization document with a member of the White Plains Apostille team
  • They can then provide direction and outline the next steps for your specific situation
