Apostille on Documents or Translations for Germany

What is Apostille certification?

Apostille is a type of certification which may be used to authenticate a translation or
document as well as any signatures present on the document. It is most commonly applied to notarized documents to
confirm the authenticity of the notary’s signature.

It additionally may certify the country of origin of the document, the conditions under which the document was signed and the identity of both the signatory and the registered authority who has issued certification of the document. The Apostille legalization may be stamped directly onto the document, or may alternatively be affixed to it.

When would I need an Apostille certification of my document?
In order to accept any document or certificate as legally valid, any country signed to the Hague Convention of 1961 may require the document to be issued with Apostille certification in the country in which the document was produced.
