Apostilization

Print

Notary documents are valid only in the country where the notary is authorized. In order to use documents outside the state, a procedure of notarial approval must be performed first in Court, then in the foreign ministry and then in the relevant state embassy. This procedure is a complex and not inexpensive and may take several days (depending on the working hours of the relevant embassy). Such is, for example, is the procedure for sending notarized documents to China (but not to Hong Kong, which is a party to the Apostille Convention).
According to the Hague Convention of 05.10.1961, apostille approval on the documents accompanying notarized approval is sufficient for the target country to recognize as long as it is also a member of the Convention. When the target country is a signatory to the Apostille Convention, the procedure is significantly cheaper and we usually do it within a business day from the date of notarial signing (subject to Courts working on that day). As of June 2020, the convention has 119 jurisdictions signed upon it and thus notary delivery of documents to them is in a shortened process: Albania, Andorra, Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Bahrain, Barbados, Belarus, Belgium, Belize, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Burundi, Cape Verde, Chile, Colombia, Cook Islands, Costa Rica, Croatia , Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Estonia, Fiji, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lesotho, Liberia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Malawi, Malta, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Mexico, Moldova, Monaco, Mongolia, Montenegro, Morocco, Namibia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Niue, Northern Macedonia, Norway, Oman, Palau, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Samoa, San Marino, Sao Tome and Principe, Serbia, Seychelles, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, Tajikistan, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States of America, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Vanuatu, and Venezuela.
