Why apostille is required & what does it means?

An Apostille (pronounced “ah-po-steel”)

Apostille is a French word meaning certified.

An apostille is simply the name for a specialized certificate, issued by the secretary of state. The apostille is attached to back side of your original document to verify it is Genuine so it will be accepted in one of the other countries who are members of the Hague Convention.

The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents, the Apostille Convention, or the Apostille Treaty, is an international treaty drafted by the Hague Conference on Private International Law. It specifies the modalities through which a document issued in one of the signatory countries can be certified for legal purposes in all the other signatory states. A certification under the terms of the convention is called an apostille (from Latin post illa and then French: a marginal note). It is an international certification comparable to a notarisation in domestic law, and normally supplements a local notarisation of the document. If the convention applies between two countries, such an apostille is sufficient to certify a document’s validity, and removes the need for double-certification, by the originating country and then by the receiving country.

After World War II, steps were taken to establish the HCCH as an intergovernmental organisation,
governed by its Member States and administered by a secretariat, the Permanent Bureau. The
treaty establishing the HCCH, the “Statute of the Hague Conference on Private International
Law”, was adopted during the Seventh Diplomatic Session of the HCCH in 1951, and entered into
force on 15 July 1955.
