Birth Certificate with Apostille - Canada

Recommended Posts

Could someone help me understand what an apostille is? I am a Canadian citizen getting married in Cancun in April, and I am wondering what else is required other than my original birth certificate, passport and tourist card. Do I need something else to confirm that my birth certificate is valid? If someone could help me, I would really appreciate it.

I replied to you in the Dreams Cancun thread too but here is what I said, hope it helps...

Not at all a silly question and it is a little confusing. If you chose to have your legal ceremony at DC you will need to have your documents apostilled. What this means is that your State certifies that it is an original document. They basically verify that the person who signed it is legitimate and all. I tried looking it up for Fredericton NB but didnt have any immediate luck. Do you have anything equivalent to a Secretary of State department? Thats who did it for me.
Check out this site about the apostille in Canada, it may help...

Thank you guys for your help! Sorry for the delay in responding. The last word I received from the wedding coordinator at Dreams Cancun regarding this was that I didn`t need the apostille, and that I could just bring my passport, birth certificate and tourist card. She said she had checked with the judge and that this was fine. All that being said, I still went ahead and contacted a notary lawyer to be on the safe side, who prepared a letter notarizing the birth certificates. I am planning to scan this to see if that was what she was looking for and will take the originals with me.

    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
