Hague Convention Act 1961 Countries

The purpose of the Convention is that it abolishes the requirement of diplomatic and consular legalisation for public documents originating in one Convention country and intended for use in another. Documents issued in a Convention country which have been certified by a Convention Apostille are entitled to recognition in any other Convention country without any further authentication. Such recognition is an obligation on the part of one country to another country party to the Convention and the courts and authorities have been alerted to this obligation. Consular officers in Convention countries are prohibited from placing a certification over the Convention Apostille.
