What Is An Apostille?

An apostille is an official certificate that verifies the source of a public document. It is a unique form of international certification used by parties to the 1961 Hague Convention that waived the requirement of legalization for foreign public records.

1.Validation: It authenticates the signature and position of the officer who issued or notarized a document so that the recipient can be sure of the authenticity of the paper.

  2. Standardization: The Apostille itself looks the same in all member countries, although the annotations (which include details about the issuer, the person signing the original document, etc.) will differ depending on the record.

   3. Simplification: Before the Hague Convention, a document could be certified multiple times in both the issuing and receiving countries. With an Apostille, once a record is authorized in its country of origin, it is automatically considered approved in all other member countries.

Standard documents that may require an apostille include:

  • Birth, marriage, and death certificates
  • Adoption papers
  • Diplomas and transcripts
  • Corporate documents such as articles of incorporation
  • Court orders or other official documents

To obtain an Apostille for a specific document, one usually needs to contact the appropriate government department in the country where the document originated. Simplification will be the Department of State or Foreign Affairs in many countries.
