What is an Apostille?
An Apostille is a pre-printed form certifying a document for use in another country, pursuant to the 1961 Hague Convention. The Apostille is an abbreviated method of legalization that certifies the Notary’s signature. Simply put, countries that are party to the Hague Convention have agreed to do away with the lengthy legalisation process and accept documents with the Apostille as authentic. An Apostille is issued by the U.S. Department of State.
