India
Since 2005, is a member of the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961 that abolished the requirement of legalization of foreign public documents. Apostille is acceptable in 105 member-countries of the Convention (For more info please visit the website: www.hcch.net). Apostille is done for personal documents like birth/death/marriage certificates, Affidavits, Power of Attorney, etc. and educational documents like degree, diploma, matriculation and secondary level certificates etc. Any document Apostilled in one member country is acceptable in all the other 104 member-countries, signatory to the referred convention of 1961 thus greatly simplifying the process of attestation by making it needless to get the documents attested in each or for each of the countries separately.

Non-Signatory or Ratified Countries

Our experience also shows that, in many cases, even though a country is not a signatory to The Hague Conference, the Apostille is still known, recognised and accepted as authentic on a case by case basis. This has come about because of the official governmental source of an Apostille and its inherent simplicity. We cannot however, offer any guarantees that this will be the case. Should you wish to use an Apostille in a non-member country, it is essential that you confirm beforehand whether the entity you wish to present the Apostille document to will recognize the authenticity of an Apostille.

It may also be the case that further Legalisation or Attestation is required before the Apostilled document is recognised as legal.

In any case, the first step is the Apostille. The Apostille is a pre-requisite to further Legalisation or Attestation.
