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 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.
As at 1st January, 2010, the following countries have AGREED to participate in "The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents"
