UT Senate Bill 8


State: Utah
Signed: March 27, 2015

Effective: July 01, 2015
Chapter: 280


Senate Bill 8 reduces the fees the Lieutenant Governor's office charges for expedited services related to the issuance of apostilles and certifications.


Fees charged by the Lieutenant Governor's office.

  1. Reduces the fee to $50 from $65 for expedited processing of an apostille or certification within 2 hours of the request, if presented before 3:00 p.m.
  2. Reduces the fee to $25 from $40 for expedited processing of an apostille or certification by the end of the next business day.

As part of the state of Utah's budget bill, Senate Bill 8 reduces the fees charged for expedited processing of apostilles and certifications. In some instances, timely issuance of an apostille or certification is needed to facilitate a business or personal need. Some state issuing offices have established expedited processing fees to accommodate these requests. It should be noted that Senate Bill 8 doesn't raise the fees for the apostille or certification itself; these fees remain at the current $15. The budget bill also leaves untouched the fees for Notary applications, testing and duplicate Notary commissions.
