Apostille in israel

High availability, home delivery, years of experience

The apostille is designed to save part of the chain of verifications required for a person seeking to present a public certificate from one country to another. Thus, for example, before the Hague Convention of 1961 (the Apostille Convention) was created, the same person had to verify the public certificate at the competent authority that issued it, verify the signature of that authority at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of that country, and finally, verify the signature of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the diplomatic or consular mission of the country in which he wishes to present the document.

The apostille is designed to save part of the chain of verifications required for a person seeking to present a public certificate from one country to another. Thus, for example, before the Hague Convention of 1961 (the Apostille Convention) was created, the same person had to verify the public certificate at the competent authority that issued it, verify the signature of that authority at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of that country, and finally, verify the signature of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the diplomatic or consular mission of the country in which he wishes to present the document.

How to receive certification for Israeli public documents?

Legalization of State Issued Documents

Apostille is required if you wish to certify an official document and verify its authenticity and source.

Apostille can be affixed by different government offices, such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Jerusalem), Ministry of Education or others. The legalization of documents prevents counterfeiting. If one wishes to prove to foreign authorities the authenticity and content of a document, such as when migrating to another country, they will need to show them official Israeli documents with Apostille. Apostille is a tax.

Legalization of State Issued Documents with Notarized Translation in israel

Apostille must be applied twice in this situation. This situation occurs when someone needs to translate their birth certificate but the foreign authorities insist on submitting an original document along with the translation. In this situation, the Apostille must be placed on both the reverse of the original birth certificate issued by the Israeli Ministry of Interior as well as the reverse of the notarized translated by an Israeli Notary.

Apostille on Notarized Documents

Apostille is required to show that a document has been notarized, for example, a notarized translator or notarized signature verifying.

Apostille is available at some Israeli judiciary authorities that are located within the offices of Ministry of Justice.

The legalization of documents notarized is to prevent the forgery and counterfeiting of Notary seals and signatures.

The computer system stores samples of the Notary’s seal and signature. Court staff have access to this information. Apostille is a duty.

Where can I get a certificate of authenticity for Israeli public documents?

As mentioned above, the legalization of state-issued documents by attaching Apostille is possible in government institutions such as Ministry of Education and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Apostille and Notary seals can be affixed by some Israeli courts for the certification of identity.

A state tax is charged if both types of Apostilles are required.

What is Apostille?

Apostille is applied in Israel under the Hague Convention from 05 October 1961. This Convention was created to resolve issues relating to the recognition and acceptance of documents from different countries. The countries who signed the Convention are required to accept foreign documents authenticated with an Apostille as if the stamp was issued in the country they are presented.

What is the Apostille Stamp?

Apostille stamps are stickers that contain a standard text according to the Hague Convention. The text includes the name of country issuing the document, identity of person who signed the Apostille as well as title and employment of this person (Ministry of Foreign Affairs or judicial authorities). The text contains the name of the country that issued the document, the identity of the person who signed the Apostille, as well as the title and place of employment of such a person (Ministry of Foreign Affairs, judicial authorities, etc.).

What is Apostille of documents?

According to the Hague Convention of 1962, which was signed by the majority of Western countries in 1961, each signatory nation authorizes notaries to notarize the documents. This allows the document translated and issued in Israel and stamped with an Apostille to be valid and legal in all signatory states and countries.

Apostille is mainly used on birth certificates that are needed for legal actions in foreign countries. A power of attorney is required for minor children when traveling abroad.

This procedure is still required today in cases where a person wishes to present a public certificate of one

country in another country, when one of those countries is not a signatory to the Apostille Convention. For example, a person who wishes to present an Israeli birth certificate in Canada (which is not signed by the Apostille Convention), must issue the certificate at the Ministry of the Interior, verify the signature of the registration clerk of the Ministry of the Interior at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and then verify the signature of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the Canadian Embassy in Israel. It becomes even more complex when a person wants to present a public certificate from one country in another country, which does not have an official representation in the country that issued the certificate.
