Apostille Authentication:


An Apostille is the authentication of a document with an official gold seal or signature. If you are sending your documents to a country that is part of the Hague Apostille Convention, an Apostille certificate is used as proof of authenticity among the member nations. Hague Convention countries have agreed on a more simplified legalization process to execute international transactions. Non-Hague Convention countries require Embassy Legalization which can be a more involved process. Select the country which requires authenticated documents to find out what's required:
