How to order an Apostille Certificate from the Washington Secretary of State
An original or certified copy is required. You can order a certified copy of your articles and request an Apostille at the same time, additional processing time will apply. 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 costs $15. Expedited service is available for $20 more and should take less than 3 days, plus additional time for mailing. Always provide the name of the country needing an Apostille.
