Hague Convention Apostille List of Countries


What is an Apostille ?

In 1961, the process for legalising documents for use abroad was abolished and replaced by a certificate of authenticity, called an ‘Apostille’ under the Hague Convention.

Below is an alphabetical list of over 90 countries that signed or have since signed and become party to the Hague Convention. The year after each country is the year the country signed and became party to the convention. Please click on the lettered links above or below, or scroll down the page.

There are also many other countries which recognise an Apostille certificate. This requirement varies widely even within a given country, consequently it's important for you to check the exact requirements of the authority, agent or employer in the country you are dealing with whether you need a document (e.g. a Basic Disclosure) Certified by a Solicitor or by a Notary prior to us sending it to the FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) for the Apostille Certificate.
