Notaries often encounter documents that will be sent to another country. Certain countries require that documents used by travelers have an Apostille or authentication certificate prior to accepting the documents.
What is an Apostilles
Apostilles and authentication certificates validate the seal and signature of a notary on a document so that it can be accepted in a foreign country. It verifies that the signature and the notary are authentic and validated.
When are Apostilles Needed?
Apostilles are used when public documents are being transferred between countries that are party to the Hague Apostille Convention of 1961. This international treaty streamlined the cumbersome, traditional procedure for authenticating documents.
