The lamination from the certificate will be removed carefully so as not to cause any damage to the certificate. The attestation stamps will be put on the non- laminated area of the certificate. It is our suggestion to you to avoid laminating your certificates, since different countries demand for different attestations on the certificates and every time removal of lamination may cause some undesirable damages to your valuable certificates.

The legalization of the message is required of states that are not part of the convention. Often, these states will still ask for the apostille to be included in the document, though they will then make their own stamps and signatures as an additional form of legalization. The legalization of the message is often needed for work or educational purposes. Often, employers will ask the new employee to provide educational certificates such as titles or A-levels, and sometimes they may also ask the employee to file criminal records. Had these documents not received the legalization of the message in particular, they would not be accepted in that state. The reason for this is that the document does not come from this state, if it has not been legalized then it will not be recognized and cannot be used.

Both verify that you held a Notary commission at the time you notarized the document. Apostilles are used when public documents are being transferred between countries that are party to the Hague Apostille Convention of 1961. An apostille is issued by your Secretary of State's office or Notary commissioning agency.

An apostille to a document is the authentication, by a specially appointed government official, of a copy of a public document which has been notarized as a true copy by a notary public. The apostille is accepted under Hague convention of 1961 to all the countries which are signatories to it.

Apostille Requirements. Apostilles authenticate the seals and signatures of officials on public documents such as birth certificates, court orders, or any other document issued by a public authority so that they can be recognized in foreign countries that are members of the 1961 Hague Convention Treaty.

Generally, state laws do not expressly prohibit the Notary from notarizing a document that is not in the English language. However, depending on the circumstances, it may be inadvisable to notarize such foreign-language documents. The danger, of course, is that the document is being misrepresented to the Notary.

If the requesting country is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, you will be required to provide a Marriage Certificate with an Apostille. The Apostille helps authenticate the document for acceptance in the other country. Marriage Certificates issued by a State must be authenticated from the same State.

An apostille is a certificate that authenticates the origin of a public document (for example, a birth certificate, marriage certificate or death certificate, a trial, an extract from a record or a notarial credential). The Model Apostille Certificate is reproduced at the beginning of this booklet. Apostilles can only be issued for documents issued in a Contracting Party to the Apostille Convention that will be used in another country that is also a Party to the Convention. You need an apostille if all of the following applies:
• The country in which the document was issued is part of the Apostille Convention
• The country in which the document will be used is part of the Apostille Convention
• The law of the country in which the document was issued considers it a public document
• The country in which the document will be used requires an apostille to be recognized as a public document abroad.
An apostille should never be used to recognize a document in the country where this document was issued. The apostles are exclusively for the use of public documents abroad! An apostille cannot be required if the laws, regulations or practices applicable in the country in which the public document is to be used have abolished or simplified the requirement of an apostille or have exempted the document from any legalization obligation. Such simplification or derogation can also be derived from a contract or other agreement between the country in which the public document will be used and the country where it was issued (for example, in some other documents of the Hague Convention). legalization or similar formalities excluded); including an apostille). In case of doubt, ask the recipient of your document if an apostille is required in your case.

The Apostille applies only if both the country in which the public document as the country in which the public deed was issued, will be used to the agreement parties. In the Apostille section of the website of the conference of The Hague is a complete and updated list of countries where the apostille is or will be implemented soon, find the link entitled Status Book of the Apostille. Table Status Apostille consists of two parts: the first part contains the countries that have joined the apostille and are members of the conference of The Hague (ie the organization that develops the convention); The second part lists the countries that have joined the Apostille Convention but are not members of the Hague Conference. In other words, a country does not have to be a member of the Hague Conference to be part of the Apostille Convention. When consulting the state table of the Apostille Convention, always consider the following: • Check if both the country in which the public document was issued as the country where the document will be listed throughout the status table.
• Whether a country appears on the first or second part of the status table, the convention applies equally to members and non-members of the organization.
• Check the date of entry into force of the Convention for both countries. If you are looking for the column that is only valid after this date, the country can issue and receive apostles.
• There are several ways in which a country can become a party to the Convention (ratification, accession, succession or continuation), but these differences do not affect the way in which the Convention operates in a country.
• If one of the countries has acceded to the convention, make sure that the other country has not objected to this accession. To find out, see the column marked with the name of the country being accessed and check if there is a connection, if so, click it is titled and see if the other country is on the list.
• Check that the Convention applies to the whole territory of a country or only parts of it; To find out if there is a link in the columns "Res / D / N", click on it and read the relevant information.

If your public document was issued or is to be used in a country where the Apostille Convention does not apply, you should contact the Embassy or a Consulate of the country where you intend to use the document in order to find out what your options are. The Permanent Bureau (Secretariat) of the Hague Conference does not provide assistance in such cases.

The Convention applies only to public documents. Whether a document is a public document or not depends on the law of the country in which the document was issued. Countries generally apply the Convention to a large number of documents. Most apostles are issued for administrative documents, including birth, marriage and death certificates; Documents originating from an authority or official associated with a court, court or commission; Excerpts from commercial records and other records; patents; notarial deeds and notarial declarations (recognitions) of signatures; School, university and other academic diplomas issued by public institutions. The Apostille Convention does not apply to documents issued by diplomatic or consular representations. The Convention also excludes certain administrative documents relating to trade or customs from its scope.

Before you contact a competent authority to obtain an Apostille, you should consider the following questions: • Does the apostilles agreement apply in the country that issued the public document and in the country where I would like to use it?
• If the country that issued the public document has designated several competent authorities: What is the competent authority responsible for issuing an Apostille for my public document?
• Can I receive an apostille for my public document, ie my document is considered a public document under the law of the country in which it was issued?
• Can I request an apostille by mail or should I introduce myself? This is especially relevant if you live in a country other than the country where your public document was issued.
• If I have several documents, do I need several apostles?
• In addition to the public document, are there any additional documents or additional information that must be provided to obtain an apostille (eg a document confirming my identity or a sealed envelope for applications by post)?
• What is the price of an Apostille and what forms of payment are there?
• How long will it take to get the Apostille?

No. An appendix to the Apostille Convention contains a model Apostille certificate (reproduced at the beginning of this booklet). The Apostilles must come as close as possible to this certification model. In particular, an apostille must:
• Identified as an apostille; and
• The abridged version of the French title of the Convention (La Haye Convention of 5 October 1961); and
• Add a box with the 10 numbered standard information elements.
An apostille can also provide additional information. For example, an apostille can:
• Providing additional information about the public document to which it relates;
• Remember the limited impact of an apostille (ie only the source of the public document to which it refers).
• Specify an Internet address (URL) of a record at which the origin of the Apostille can be verified.
• Indicate that the apostille may not be used in the country that issued it
However, this additional information must be outside the frame containing the 10 numbered standard pieces of information.

An apostille must be placed directly on the public document itself or on a separate attached page (supporting document). Apostilles can be placed by various means, including rubber stamps, self-adhesive labels, printed stamps, etc. If an apostille is placed in an supporting document, the latter can be attached to the underlying public document by various means, including glue. Eyelets, brackets, bands, wax seals, etc. While all these funds are acceptable under the Convention, competent authorities are encouraged to use safer methods of retention to ensure the integrity of the apostille. Failure to affix an Apostille in a particular manner is not a basis for refusing the Apostille.

An apostille only confirms the origin of the public document to which it relates: it confirms the authenticity of the signature or seal of the person or authority that signed and sealed the public document and the ability in which it was produced. An apostille does not confirm the content of the public document to which it refers. Apostilles are not concessions and do not add weight to the content of the underlying documents. An apostille can never be used for the recognition of a document in the country in which the document was issued. Apostils are exclusively for the use of public documents abroad. It corresponds to the country in which the Apostille is used to decide how much weight the underlying public document should have.

No. An Apostille issued by the relevant Competent Authority is all that is required to establish that a signature or seal on a public document is genuine and to establish the capacity of the person or authority that signed or sealed the public document. No. An apostille issued by the competent authority is sufficient to prove that a signature or seal of a public document is genuine and to substantiate the ability of the person or authority that signed or sealed the public document.

Apostilles issued in accordance with the requirements of the Convention must be recognized in the country in which they are used. Apostilles can only be rejected if and when:
• Its origin can not be verified (ie if the apostille data does not match those in the register of the competent authority which allegedly issued the Apostille).
• Its formal elements are fundamentally different from the model certificate attached to the Convention.
Although an apostille should conform as closely as possible to the model certificate attached to the Convention, in practice the apostles issued by various competent authorities differ in design, size and color as well as in every additional element that may be included in the certificate. Such variations in appearance are no basis for the rejection of an apostille. The failure to include an apostille in a particular way in the public document is not a basis for rejecting the apostille. The mere fact that an apostille is used in a manner other than the method of the country in which it is used is no reason for rejecting the apostille. The additional text in an apostille with the 10 numbered standard information elements is no basis for refusing an apostille. Apostille certificates issued by countries that are not part of the Convention must be rejected in all other States because they conflict with the Convention.
