ORDER YOUR APOSTILLE TODAY:

A. No. A model apostille certificate is provided by an Annex to the Apostille Convention and Apostilles should conform as closely as possible to this model certificate. An Apostille must be identified as an Apostille and include the following title: Convention de la Haye du 5 octobre 1961. An apostille must include a box with the 10 numbered standard informational items. An apostille may also provide additional information such as information about the public document to which it relates, it may recall the limited effect of an Apostille, it may provide a web link to verify its authenticity or it may specify that the Apostille is not to be used in the country that issued it. Such additional information must be outside the box that holds the 10 numbered standard informational items. While an Apostille should conform as closely as possible to the model certificate, in practice Apostilles issued by different Competent Authorities vary. These variations may be in design, size and color as well as in any additional elements mentioned outside the box that holds the 10 numbered standard informational items. Such variations in appearance are not a basis for refusal of an Apostille by the intended recipient. – This text was extracted from “The ABC of Apostilles” by the HccH (Hague Conference on Private International Law that you can look at: www.hcch.net)
