Apostille/MEA Attestation Services


If you’re looking to transpose abroad for educational, employment, business, marriage or simply migration purposes, this article will guide you through a great amount of essential knowledge about the authorization of your personal, professional and legal documents. Some documents like Birth Certificates, Police Clearance Certificates (PCC), Marksheets/ Diploma Certificates, Marriage certificates etc. are required to be verified for authentication by the authorized organization of the home country before being lawfully accepted by a foreign country. The process of verifying and approving the required documents by the organization of a particular country is called Apostillation of documents.

Apostille or Hague Apostille is an international attestation that was drafted by the Hague Conference on 5th October, 1961, Netherlands which is approved and accepted by 92 countries of the world today. Some of these nations are world’s most developed ones including Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mauritius, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Russian Federation, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, UK etc.

Under this treaty, a document certified by one member country is acknowledged for legal, educational and professional purposes in other member countries, without any further attestation requirements. India being a part of the Hague Convention, provides and approves Apostilled documents. Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi, India is the legalized authority that provides Apostille Stamps for the following documents to be used in other associated countries of the Hague Convention:

      Birth/Death Certificate

      Police Clearance Certificate (PCC)

      Marriage Certificate

      Divorce Decrees

      Diploma/Degree Certificate



      Court/Legal Documents

      Single Status Certificate

      Powers of Attorney

      Company Incorporation Papers

      Patent Applications

      School Transcripts

      Adoption Papers

Before getting Apostilled by the Ministry of External Affairs, India, a document is required to be notarized(verified) and signed by an authentic lawyer after which it is mandatory to get a State Level Attestation. Without these procedures, the document will not be endorsed for Apostille. Depending on the type of document and its authenticity, Apostille Stamp can be provided for either original document or copy of the same for it to be acknowledged by the embassy of the welcoming country. Even countries that are not a part of the Hague Convention, demand documents to be Apostilled as an Apostille Stamp on a document means that it has been verified by the legitimate authority of the residing country of the document holder. However, non-participant countries also require further legalization of the Apostilled documents from their respective state embassies to verify the genuineness of those documents.
