APOSTILLE SEAL EXPLAINED
(FAQ) Frequently Asked Questions:
What is an Apostille? (APO-STEEL)
The Apostille seal authentication is an international authority that is sealed with your document which allows the receiving nation/country to be assured that the document itself has went thru a process of validation, legalization, notarization and or authentication. The Apostille is not a notary. The Apostille Seal created by the international treaty of the Hague Convention on private law on October 5th,1961 which specifies the rules for Apostille. In working terms the Apostille is used to create trust and surety between foreign government divisions concerning public documents and allows them to have some assurance that the document they are receiving is valid, legal and authentic.
