Apostille Convention, abolishing the Requirements of the time – consuming Embassy/Consular Legalization, is an agreement between the states which has been signed by 105 countries during the Hague Conference on Private International Law in 1961. 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 (what in French means “Certification”). Apostille is an internationally recognized certificate supplementing a notarization or authentication of the document.
Andorra and Apostille Convention
The Principality of Andorra has been a member of Apostille Convention since December 31, 1996. Accordingly, any public or official document issued in the USA or other country and destined for Andorra should be authenticated 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 last step in the document legalization process. 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 Andorra. It’s also important to identify what documents are being requested by the country of Andorra in order to avoid any delays or additional costs.
