A death certificate is a legal document that lists the cause, date, and location of an individual's death. The certificate is signed by a medical professional and filed with the state in which the death occurred. An apostille is a certificate that authenticates the origin of a document.
An apostille on a death certificate may be required in order to register a death in another country. The Hawaii Secretary of State's office can issue an Apostille for documents that will be used in a foreign country. An apostille may be used for a document issued by one of the following entities:
