What is an apostille?

The term apostille comes from the Apostille convention of 5 October 1961. The convention was held in Hague, Netherlands. The convention decided that if a country is a part of the convention; the citizens of the nation can apostille their documents. Doing so will make the documents legally verified in all other countries that are a member of the treaty.

How is it done

So hypothetically, if your country is a member of the Apostille treaty, then the document you have will have to be attested by the secretary of state, court or certain other offices that have the authority to apostille the document. Once the document has been apostilled; the document will be considered legally certified and well-verified by all the other countries that are a part of the list.

Preparing for Apostille

Preparing for an apostille is a particular task that requires expertise. The document will be eligible for apostille if the document has been through specific procedures. The procedures are different for every country. In the United States, the document will need to be notarized to be considered for apostille by the relevant office.

What does the Apostille look like?

It is a separate certificate that is attached to the document. On the top of the certificate, a page is written ‘apostille,’ and then the details are spread for further elaboration. The certificate includes the name of the signing country, the name of the signing office, name of the signing person, the date, the location, and seal of the office and the stamp of the apostille. This is an essential elaboration; the document contains much more detail if there is more need. The certificate acts as a validity affidavit for all the 115 countries that are a part of Apostille treaty right now.

What Kind of Documents can be Apostilled?

The convention mentions four types of documents that are allowed to be apostilled. Following is a short description of every kind of document open for apostille.

Court Documents: All the documents issued by the court that is not open for the contest can be apostilled. Documents such as wills, divorce papers, marriage certificates and other similar documents are included in the list.

Administrative Documents: If the government issues a document for any matter; the document can be apostilled.

Notarial Acts: Any documents issued by the notary office of the country can be apostilled.

Document Registration: When a document is signed to register anything such as land, property, business or any personal matter; the document can be Apostilled.

But if it is written in a foreign language than that of the receiving country, then it must be translated first. The translation must be carried out by a qualified professional. If it is not a hundred percent accurate, it will not be accepted by the authorities.

You can request an apostille from another country as long as it is also a part of the convention. However, the criteria are different in each state, so you will have to learn about them before you can send in your application.

It can be provided by qualified and experienced professionals. They attach their signed statement with the translation to authenticate it.
