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.
