The Hague Apostille: what is it?

On the initiative of The Hague Apostille Convention, a procedure was created for the recognition of documents moving to a foreign country.


The Apostille is a simplified legalization formality with the model generally being the same in all member countries.

Legalization or Apostille

How to do you know which procedure to follow?

The Hague Apostille Convention is a permanent assembly with headquarters at The Hague in The Netherlands, bringing together 150 countries.


For non-member states, documents are rather legalized by the Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Consulate of the concerned countries.
