Q.1189  Apostille USA issued document in India at US Consulate . . .

Question: Dear Sir My daughter who is 20year old is applying for OCl card from india. She is US citizen by birth.but lived in india since 20 years .Recently got her indian visa legalized after overstaying from MHA delhi. Her birth certificate needs to be Apostled or endorsed by the concerned indian mission. Can it be done at Chennai US embassy as i was told by FRRO bangalore to approach them. Thanks in advance. Ragards Answer:   My understanding is that US issued documents must be Apostilled in USA from the State that issued the original document. For example a US born in California would have to get their birth certificate apostilled in California. Each US State issues Apostilles for their own State issued documents and maintain a website to help explain the procedure of obtaining an Apostille. The US Consulates do provide notary services for their citizens by appointment. Call the US Consulate for complete information. The timings for the Chennai US Consulate are: Monday through Friday from 9:00 am. to 12:30 pm. [Closed the last Wednesday of every month] Chennai US Consulate phone number is (0)44-2857-4000 If FRRO Bangalore has told you to app approach the Chennai US Consulate you should check with them.
