What is an Apostille Certificate?

An Apostille Certificate is an official government Certificate printed or stamped onto the reverse side of a single page document or attached to multiple paged documents with notary ribbon making it become one inseparable document. It authenticates the seal and or signature of the public official or authority such as a notary public or registrar issuing the document. A Notary Public in South-Africa must also be a practicing attorney. A Notary Public is considered a public official appointed by law, inter alia, to witness signatures or certify copied documents for international use. When a Notary Public signs, seals or stamps a document, that document then becomes a public document capable of being apostilled or legalised. An issued Apostille Certificate confirms that the person signing, sealing or stamping a public document has lawful authority to do so, and the apostilled document automatically becomes a legal document in countries which are members of the Hague Convention. It does not authenticate or confirm the contents of a document.
