What is an Apostille and what is an E-Apostille?
The Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents, or the Apostille Convention, is the international treaty that governs the use of apostilles (Which is a form of stamp). The Convention simplifies the legalization process for public documents, such as birth, marriage and death certificates, diplomas and degrees, and notarial acts, by eliminating the need for consular legalization.
The E-apostille is issued by the Competent Authority of the country where the document originates, and it certifies the authenticity of the signature, the capacity in which the person signing the document has acted, and, where appropriate, the identity of the seal or stamp which the document bears. The E-apostille also confirms that the signature, seal or stamp on the document is genuine.
The E-apostille is recognized by all the countries that are party to the Apostille Convention, which includes over 110 countries worldwide. This means that documents that have been issued an E-apostille will be recognized and accepted by the Competent Authorities of other countries that are party to the Convention, without the need for further legalization.
If you need an E-apostille for a personal document or a commercial contract, it’s recommended to check with the competent authorities in your country and the country where the document will be used. Many countries have different regulations and requirements for E-apostille, and it’s important to make sure that your documents meet the necessary standards.
