Legalising Documents for The Philippines

The Philippines Join Hague Apostille Convention

The Apostille convention will enter into force in the Philippines from 14th May 2019. This means the Philippines are the 117th party to agree to the convention which shows the increasing endorsement for the apostille legalisation process.

It is likely to take a number of months before the authorities in the Philippines will stop requesting embassy attestation as they adjust and alter their regulations. To accommodate this adjustment period the embassy should still provide attestation of documents before the service is stopped completely.

What is the Difference Between the Apostille and Legalisation?

What is the Difference Between the Apostille and Legalisation?

There are various terms used to refer to the process of legalising a document from one country in order to be recognised in another country. You may have been asked for your document to be notarised, authenticated, legalised, attested or issued with the apostille.

This can be confusing as different authorities use different terms that, more often than not, refer to the same process. We are frequently asked what the difference is between legalisation and the apostille.

Algeria Embassy Legalisation

You are conducting business with a company in Algeria and they suddenly ask you to get the contracts and agreements attested. You have probably never heard of 'embassy attestation' and do not need the headache of trying to contact the embassy for help. That is where we help. We make document attestaiton as easy as possible.

Documents that are being submitted to Algeria require additional legalisation with the correct embassy. There are several steps to the process and documents must be submitted corretly.

Why the Apostille is Sometimes Called Attestation

Adding an apostille to a document is often referred to as the attestation. It may also be called, certification or getting a document apostilled.

The most common, and arguably correct term, is legalisation. Documents are legalised for use in another country when the apostille has been attached.

For clarity, attestation is by definition the confirmation of correctness. It also refers to the witnessing of an action or event. It is therefore easy to see why the apostille service may be referred to as attestation.
