If you need South African Documents to be RECOGNIZED AS A LEGAL DOCUMENT to be used in another country the document has to go through a ATTESTATION process which is known as APOSTILLE,  AUTHENTICATION or LEGALISATION .


To accommodate the need to assure the legality and authenticity of documents for use in a different country than where the document originated, countries acknowledge the need to establish a protocol to authenticate documents.


To keep the process as cost effective as possible most countries signed the la Hague Convention where member countries agreed to a more cost effective protocol for the authentication of documents.


In South Africa the Department of International Relations and Co-Operations are the administrators of this process. DIRCO has a Data base of all the authorised signatories of official documents in South Africa. The Type of document and the target country dictates the legalisation process.


 These documents are not limited to but can include.

 • Home Affairs documents like birth certificates, marriage certificates, death certificates, letter of no Impediment.

 • South African Police Clearance Certificates.

 • Medical certificates.

 • Educational Qualifications

 • Company documents.

 • Notary Copies
