Different countries, different requirements
Posted by  JanetK_CA of CA on 1/12/20 3:15pm Msg #614573
I've also done many notarizations going to countries that didn't require an embosser. If I've ever received a request for one going to a country that did, I would have told them I couldn't help them and immediately forgotten about it.

I also agree with Marilynn that the SOS attaches a gold seal (embossed?) when they complete the apostille. BTW, it also depends on the country the document is going to as to whether or not an apostille is even called for.

[It may be possible that not all documents going to that country will require an apostille. For example, I've received a number of requests from individuals from India, usually for routine matters, and I'd bet not all of them bothered to get an apostille. I'm guessing the officials just want to see a stamp/seal somewhere on the document.]

An apostille (which simply certifies the validity of the notary's commission - and, of course, won't be applied to an improperly executed notarization) is only completed for documents going to countries which are parties to the Hague Convention, which apparently dealt with how a variety of legal issues were to be handled between nations, even dealing with things like child support.

This is the most useful list of participating countries I could find:
