US property Apostle Seal



New Member
Hi everyone,

I have enquired with Elko NV county clerk as to the process of reselling US land, and he said I may need to obtain an Apostle Seal to notarize a deed for the transfer of title deed . He said this is obtainable from the Secretary of state. Has anybody heard of this Seal ?

Thank you

US property Apostle Seal ?

Hi Kameron,
what your after is an "Apostille Seal" I think you can get them through the Dept of Trade & Foreign Affairs. If you?re in Sydney and they are only available between 9am and 1pm, I believe.

Definition - Apostille is a French word which means a certification. It is commonly used in English to refer to the legalization of a document for international use under the terms of the 1961 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. A document which has been certified with a conformant apostle is accepted for legal use in all the nations that have signed the Hague Convention. It is comparable to a notarization in Common Law.
Thanks a lot
