Apostilles and Authentications are certifications of a state notary’s signature or a county official’s signature on a document. An apostille has been set by countries which are the signatory states to the Hague Convention of 1961 (depending on the issuing state in the USA, the appearance of the Apostille certificate varies). If the country is not part of this convention, the documents are issued a certification and additional steps (legalization of the document in embassy or a consulate) may need to be taken.
Apostille Certificates are affixed by Competent Authorities designated by the government of a state which is party to the convention. The purpose of the apostille is to abridge the process of documents legalization. To be eligible for an apostille, a document must first be issued or certified by an officer recognized by the authority that will issue the apostille. Once the documents authenticity is verified by appropriate official county, state and federal authorities in the country where the documents derivate, they do not require additional legalization in the Consulate of the Republic of Armenia.
Armenia – a party to the Apostille Agreement
Armenia is a signatory country of the Hague Convention since October 14, 1994.
Hence, any public document destined for private institutions, official or legal authorities in Armenia or in a Consulate of the Republic of Armenia in a foreign country, should be accompanied with an Apostille Certificate in order to be recognized and accepted in the territory of Armenia.
If you mean to issue a power of attorney to a party who’ll take action on your behalf in Armenia, file for the citizenship, temporary or permanent residency in Armenia, take your children who are citizens of Armenia on vocations to a foreign country, get married to a citizen of Armenia or process with child adoption, obtaining an Apostille on such public documents as birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce decree, affidavit, power of attorney, statement, consent, etc. is unavoidable. If you’ll fail to apostille your documents, they will not be recognized by Armenian government or private authorities and denied acceptance.
Depending on type of a document, the Apostille procedure varies, because every particular document requires careful approach and taking different steps to be prepared in accordance with legal requirements of the Republic of Armenia.
For example, a document, signed by an affiant, a principal giving a Power of Attorney, a witness, formally signing an official form or a document before a Notary Public, is usually prepared in few effortless steps – obtaining authentication and apostilling the document. Nonetheless, such documents as Vital Records Certificates, Police Clearance Certificate, FBI Background Check Certificate, corporate or legal documents require deeper knowledge of which institutions to employ when undertaking apostille process.
Considering the above mentioned, it is recommended to consider utilizing experienced Apostille services providers who’ll keep you away from missing important nuances when it comes to document preparation for Armenia. If produced and prepared professionally, by competent notaries and Apostille Agents, who are experts of the document preparation for foreign use, your documents will be processed in accordance with vague international rules, and will be indisputably recognized by official authorities in the territory of Armenia.
