*An Apostille is a certification provided under the Hague Convention of 1961 for authenticating documents for use in foreign countries. The sole function is to certify the authenticity of the signature of the document. Put simply, an Apostille is a certificate that is attached to another document so that it will be accepted when used overseas. Usually issued at certified notary offices, county courts or foreign ministry affairs – but basically depends from country to country.
