Documents issued in the US that are going to be used in Italy must be “authenticated” or “legalized” before they can be recognized as valid.An apostille is required on US issued documents to be recognized in Italy, according to the Apostille Section of the Hague Convention, since both the United States and Italy are members. Such documents can range from court documents, birth, death and marriages records or certificates, educational documents, such as High School Diplomas, University degrees, transcripts, incorporation papers, Powers of Attorney to Corporate documents and other legal papers. In the United States, each state issues apostilles for its own documents. Therefore the apostille must be obtained in the US state where the document was issued. Check out the state guide to make sure your documents are acceptable for an apostille, depending on which US state they were issued.
