What is Apostille?

An Apostille is an official certificate attached to a translation that helps legitimise or validate the legality of the documents in almost all countries signatories to the Apostille Convention. Once Apostilled, the translated document needs no further legalising push to be recognised in a foreign country.

What is Apostille/Legalised Translation?

Countries That Ask For An Apostille

The Apostille is required by countries that are members of the Hague Convention, streamlining the use of translations as legally valid documents.

For instance, a birth or marriage certificate with an Apostille requires no further certification when submitted to another Hague Convention member country.
