Apostille Convention, abolishing the Requirements of the chain Embassy/Consular Legalization, is an international agreement which has been signed by 105 countries during the Hague Conference on Private International Law in 1962. The Apostille Treaty specifies the modalities through which a document issued in one of the signatory countries can be certified for legal purposes in all the other signatory states. Such a certification is called an Apostille Stamp (what in French means “Certification”). Apostille is an internationally recognized certificate supplementing a notarization or authentication of the document.
Albania and Apostille Convention
The Republic of Albania has been a party of the Hague Treaty since May 09, 2004. Accordingly, any public or official document issued in the USA or other country and destined for Albania should be accompanied by the Apostille Certificate (also called an Apostille Stamp). It is issued by a local office of the Secretary of State or by the U.S. Department of State in Washington (when it comes for Apostille on FBI Clearance Certificate and some corporate documents). However, you should remember that the Apostille is the final step in the document legalization procedure. Before taking a document for an Apostille, you should authenticate it by taking to a proper local of federal USA authority.
It is important to know which intermediate departments are involved in the Apostille process, because the Apostille procedure varies and depends on a type of the document you mean to prepare for Albania. It’s also important to identify what documents are being requested by the country of Albania in order to avoid any delays or additional costs.
