Hague Convention – APOSTILLE
Apostle is the legalization of a document for international use (only in the member countries of the Hague Convention). On October 5, 1961, many nations joined to create a simplified method of “legalizing” documents for universal recognition. This group of nations is known as the Hague Convention. They adopted a document referred to as an Apostle that is internationally recognized by all member nations.
When you present a legal document in a foreign country, it is often very difficult to determine whether the document is genuine and legal. In 1961, the process for legalising documents for use abroad was abolished and replaced by a simple certificate of authenticity, called an ‘Apostle’, under the Hague Convention.
Need of an Apostle
In order for documents to be accepted and recongised abroad in another country, they will most likely need to be legalised for authenticity. The body or organisation which you are presenting the documents to should be able to advise you whether you need to have them legalised / Apostle. You can obtain advice generally from the relevant Government Department, Educational Establishment, Embassy, Consulate or High Commission of the country concerned
