If the document is intended for use in a foreign country it has to be legalized for foreign use. This is a process in which various Govt. seals are placed on the document. Many countries have joined the Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents (“The Hague convention”). The Hague Convention of October 5, 1961, “abolishes the requirement of legalization for foreign public documents and facilitates public documents executed in one state to be circulated in another. The international agreement envisages replacement of cumbersome and costly formalities of a full legalisation process with the issuance of an Apostille (also called Apostille Certificate). “In such case the only legalization required is an Apostille certificate. Once Apostille is obtained, it is automatically considered ‘valid’ and ‘acceptable’ in all the 98 Hague convention countries.
