What is an apostille certificate or apostille service?

An apostille is simply a certificate of authenticity. An apostille is a certificate that is attached to an official legal document to verify that the signatory on your document is genuine and person who signed your document is a recognised and authorised person of the organisation that issued the document. 


Each apostille is dated, given a unique reference number and registered.


An apostille enables documents issued in the United Kingdom to be used overseas (in countries which participate in the Hague Convention). When you present a legal document in a foreign country, it is often difficult to determine whether the document is genuine and legal. A simple certificate of authenticity, called an ‘apostille’ is used to do this. 


These countries validate the document (for example, a birth certificate) on the basis of the apostille, rather than the document itself. No further evidence or proof is needed when an apostille is produced.
