An Apostille Certificate & International Document Legalisation Service


Most Australian government or notarised documents to be recognised and accepted by overseas businesses, governments or courts must be authenticated or "legalised"… that is, formally proved valid and genuine.

An Apostille Certificate is a short and simple form of legalisation, but available only to those countries signatories to The Hague Convention.

If not a signatory to The Hague Convention, full document legalisation by the foreign country's Embassy or Consulate in Australia is required in place of an Apostille Certificate.
