What is Apostile Stamp ?
An Apostille certificate is an official verification given by the authorized government body for any official document (such as a marriage or birth certificate, transcripts etc.). It verifies the document as official, original and as a document was issued by the legal and appropriate authority.
In addition, an Apostille certificate verifies the authority of a Notary Public to notarize documents.
The Apostille certificate verifies the Notary Public signature on the document and verifies that the Notary Public who signed the document is indeed a Notary Public by law in the country that issued the Apostille certificate.
The Apostille verification is meant to reduce the number of procedures and verification required for an official document to be accepted by a foreign authority.
Most of the European and Latin America countries are members of the Hague convention treaty as well as the U.S.A and countries in Africa and Oceania.
Israel is also a member of the Hague Convention Treaty and even set special regulations in 1977 in order to apply it.
According to these regulations the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Court of Justice or any other authorized government body are authorized to issue an Apostille certificate.
