The California Secretary of State allows you to verify whether an apostille or authentication certificate was issued by the CA Secretary of State office. This service is available for apostilles / authentication certificates issued after January 1, 2017.

Here you can check the authenticity of a California apostille / authentication certificate.

Please note that the authenticity check does not provide information about the document that was apostilled / authenticated, it provides only the information that a certain apostille / authentication certificate was issued on a certain date, and what signature was authenticated.

The response to your inquiry will look like this:


      Apostille Number:      97320
     Issue Date:      March 05, 2020
     Name:      Regina Alcomendras
     Title:      County Clerk-Recorder, County of Santa Clara
     If this does not match the information on the Apostille you have, do not accept it.  


 We verify all apostilles / authentication certificates manually,  therefore you will get the response within 24-hours.
