Apostille

Term Definition
Apostille

The Apostille (Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents, 1961) is a faster way of authenticating documents. It is an international certification comparable to a notarisation in domestic law, and normally supplements a local notarisation of the document. In the USA, it is normally obtained through the Secretary of State Department in your home state or, in the UK and Canada, through the Foreign Office.
