Apostille Certificates

Apostille Certificates | Convention de La Haye | The Hague Convention

We specialise in obtaining Apostille Certificates for all original Australian public,
company, commercial and educational documents.

Apostille is a French word (pronounced “ah-poh-steel”), meaning a certificate issued by
a government of a country, authenticating the signature and or seal of a public official
on a public document issued by that country, and intended for use in a foreign country.

Australian public, company, commercial or educational documents, including
documents witnessed, certified and sealed by an Australian Notary Public, when
affixed or attached with an Apostille Certificate issued by the Australian Government,
will automatically be accepted for legal use in foreign countries that are signatories to the
Hague Convention.

Apostille Certificates are restricted in their use to those countries which are signatories
to The Hague Convention; otherwise a full embassy or consulate legalisation procedure
is necessary.

Australia is a member of The Hague Convention, having ratified it on 9th August, 1994.
