Apostille Countries

The legalisation convention is the convention abolishing the requirement of legalisation for foreign public documents, also known as the Apostille Convention (5 October 1961). This convention does not completely abolish legalisation but shortens the chain so that only a single action is required, the addition of an apostille. A document bearing an apostille does not require any further legalisation by the embassy or consulate of the country in which it is to be used.

In Spain, there are three authorities that can issue an Apostille, depending on the type of document:

For documents issued by a judicial authority, the Apostille is issued by the Secretario de la Sala de Gobierno del Tribunal Superior de Justicia.
For documents authorized by a notary or private documents with signatures legitimized by the notary, the Apostille is issued by the deacon of the Colegio Notarial.
For documents issued by the national administration, the Apostille is issued by the Jefe de la Sección Central de la Subsecretaría del Ministerio de Justicia.

What is the role of a notary in Spain?

A notary in Spain has a more elevated role than in the UK or USA; they do much more than just verify signatures. To gain the title of notary requires years of additional studies. At the closing, the notary takes over, acting on behalf of both parties to make sure that the transaction is proper and agreed to.

DHow does a power of attorney work in Spain?

A power of attorney done in Spain in front of a Spanish notary grants the authorised officer to act as your legal representative with full efficacy within the area of powers granted in any country world-wide. The efficacy is such that, in Spain, even though the power of attorney has been revoked, unless the deed granting power of attorney is not withdrawn, the authorised officer may continue to act on your behalf (or to your detriment). For this reason it is important to define specifically the powers granted and find out about their respective effects. Strong Abogados can advise you about these points, and let you know the steps to follow to obtain international legitimization if you want the document to be effective outside Spain (The Hague Apostille).
