NOTE! Only US-issued documents can receive an apostille in the United States. If your document was issued in Portugal, you must contact the competent authorities in Portugal for the legalization process. An apostille on Portugal-issued documents can be processed in the United States ONLY if a document issued in Portugal but either a signature on the document or a copy of the document was notarized by a US notary public. If your document is a vital record, it can never be notarized. Before you apply for an Apostille on your document, please check with the competent authorities in Portugal for any additional requirements pertaining to your document legalization. Many states in the United States require that any document issued in a foreign language must first be translated into English. In addition, some countries require that the certified translation of the original document must also be apostilled. Certain countries have very specific requirements for translation (that translation needs to be notarized, certified, or even done only by translators pre-authorized by the Embassy/Consulate of the country of destination.) Portugal Apostille offers translation services if needed. Our experienced and reliable translators can help you with translation from/into 50+ languages. Please let us know if you need any assistance with translating your documents and Portugal Apostille will be happy to help.
