Who Can Certify Documents For The Apostille?

To ensure your documents can be legalised with the apostille they must be certified correctly by a recognised legal official under the Hague apostille convention. With overseas authorities requesting the apostille for different types of documents it can be confusing to know who is able to provide certification. The following is a list of the most common officials and the types of documents they can certify for the apostille process.


How Is The Signature On a Document Verified?

In pursuance of legalising a document with the apostille the document must have an identifiable and verifiable signature of a recognised legal official or a seal from the appropriate legal authority. This signature or seal is verified by the apostille authority in the country the document originates from and, subsequently, the apostille is issued to verify this signature or seal on a document.
