Foreign Authentication of Documents

Prior to October 1961, there was a cumbersome process in place for legalisation of these documents, however with the Hague Convention on Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Documents a standard was adopted.

The signature will be verified by comparing it to the notary appointment form on file and a simple document called an Apostille will be filled out and signed. If you are planning on doing business overseas or opening bank accounts in another country, then we can assist you with getting your documents apostilled.

The Apostille will then be embossed with the official seal. A fee per document will be payable. Once the process is completed the document is then considered legalised in the countries listed below.
