Is The Peoples Republic of China (mainland) a party to the 1969 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents?

 The answer is no. At present time, China is not a party to the above-mentioned Convention, but the Convention is applicable the Chines Special Administrative Regions (S.AR.) Hong Kong  and Macao as set out infra. 

This Convention applies to the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao only, as a result of extensions made by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Portugal, respectively. When Hong Kong and Macao were restored to the People's Republic of China on 1 July 1997 and 20 December 1999, respectively, China declared that the Convention will continue to apply for Hong Kong and Macao.

When one wants to legalise documentation destined for China one must thus differentiate between Mainland China and the Special Administrative Regions Hong Kong and Macao. When the document are going to be used in both Mainland China and one of the S.A.R. separate sets will have to be both apostilled and authenticated.
