Issuing and Accepting Apostilles

The Hague Apostille Convention, 1961, abolishes the requirement of legalization of foreign documents for use in any member country, once an Apostille certificate (including e-Apostille) has been issued by a competent authority of the country where the document originates. Therefore, no further attestation or legalization by an Indian Mission/Post of an apostilled document is required for use in India as India is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention.

 Copy of a Note on “Issuing and Accepting Apostilles” regarding the provision, is enclosed for ready reference. The full text of the Hague Apostille Convention and list of its member countries are available at: [ External website that opens in a new window | External website that opens in a new window ] .
