A medical certificate is a document from a physician, nurse practitioner, or other qualified medical professional that states that a person has a particular medical condition. It may also include information about the person's current symptoms, treatment plan, and prognosis. An apostille is a form of authentication used for documents that are going to be used in another country. It is a certificate that is attached to the document that verifies that the document is a true and accurate copy of the original.
A medical certificate may need to be apostilled if it is being used in a foreign country. An apostille is an official government certification that verifies the authenticity of a document. The first step is to contact the Secretary of State’s office in Sacramento and request an Apostille. Next, you will need to provide the completed document, along with a self-addressed stamped envelope, to the office. The office will then provide you with a sealed envelope containing the Apostille. Document types that can be apostilled include: educational documents, judicial documents, notarial documents, official certificates which are placed on documents signed by persons in their official capacity and official certificates which are placed on documents for use abroad. Examples of each type of apostille certificate are included in the Downloadable Forms section of this website.
How do I know if I need an apostille or Certification instead?
An apostille is a certification that is not required by the laws of Canada. In Canada, a certification is required only when a document will be used as evidence of certain types of civil status in another jurisdiction. Examples of these type of documents include: birth certificates, marriage certificates, final divorce decrees, death certificates and adoption decrees. When a document will be alleged as civil status proof only, we recommend having the document first certified by a Commissioner for Oaths, Justice of the Peace or Notary Public before sending to us for a Certification. If you need us to certify your document as having been notarized, then you must contact a Notary Public prévôtée to have the document notarized so that it can subsequently be certified by the Authentication and Service of Documents Section.
In order to get an apostille for a medical certificate, you will need to contact the Medical Board of California and request an apostille. The board will then send you a form to fill out and return. Once the board has received your form, they will issue an apostille for your medical certificate.
