Hague Apostille Convention – Official Site

“The Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents (Hague Apostille Convention) facilitates the circulation of public documents executed in one State party to the Convention and to be produced in another State party to the Convention. It does so by replacing the cumbersome and often costly formalities of a full legalisation process with the mere issuance of an Apostille (also called Apostille Certificate or Certificate). The Hague Apostille Convention only applies as between States parties ”

PLEASE NOTE : The information on this page is provided for general apostille information only. Questions concerning interpretation of specific foreign law should be addressed to the appropriate foreign counsel for apostille procedures.
