Hi Vlad, 

ALWAYS recommend you go to the State Secretary. In your case, check out Document Authentication and Apostille | Arizona Secretary of State (azsos.gov)

Not sure where you are in relation to Phoenix or Tucson (bottom of the page) but this will give you a great start. Unfortunately it says in person services are suspended until further notice... but you should be able to do the mail in option. 😎 Check out the above link, and below I've pasted the pdf request you'll fill out. Just follow the directions on the state site. 

Documents to FileApostille/Certificate of Authentication Request (PDF) & original notarized or certified recorded document

Filing Fee: $3 per document.  Checks and money orders can be made out to, "Arizona Secretary of State." Please do not send cash by mail. We recommend paying with cash for in-person filings only.

Processing Time: 10 Business Days (by mail); in-person requests are processed immediately over the counter.

All the best! Lots of folks here always willing to help one another, so if you have more questions, poke away.

Thank you Char.
We figured this option too. Unfortunately there is no in person communication, only via mail and we are not even sure if they will Apostille these bank documents as they are in Portuguese. The bank said "you should do  Hague Apostille of your signatures or go to the Portuguese Embassy to do the recognition". We will call San Francisco Portugal embassy to see if they will do it.

@vfominehotmail-com   An apostille doesn't ' apostille' YOUR signature. It verifies/certifies the signature and capacity of the notary public (or similar) who notarized your signature.  The SOS doesn't care what language the doc is in or what it says. They are only concerned with (and verify) the validity of the notary signature and seal.
