How to order an Apostille Certificate from the Indiana Secretary of State

An original or certified copy is required. You can order a certified copy of your articles and request an Indiana Apostille at the same time. We recommend faxing the order, only if you are requesting the certified copy at the same time. Normal processing takes up to 5 days, plus additional time for mailing, and there is no fee. Expedited service is not available. However if your request is received before noon, it will be processed faster. Always provide the name of the country needing an Indiana Apostille.

You can order

By Mail:
Cover letter must include the name of the country, address the documents should be mailed to after processing, and a daytime phone number for possible questions. You must enclose a postage paid envelope or airbill, and an original or certified copy of the document, or a request for a certified copy of the document.

By Fax:
You may fax your order only if requesting the certified copy at the same time. The request must include the name of the country, a daytime phone number for any questions, and UPS/Fed Ex account number on a normal fax cover sheet.
