An apostille is a declaration that is added to a document by an official authority and that meets the form requirements mentioned in the Hague Apostille Convention of 1961. In Belgium, apostilles are issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
An apostilled document is valid for use in all countries that are signatories to the Apostille Convention.
To receive an apostille, you have to go to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Brussels in person.
Certified translations can also receive an apostille, but in that case the translation first needs to be legalized by the court of first instance and by the Ministry of Justice.
Can't make it to Brussels? We can also take care of the apostille for you. That saves you the burden of looking for a parking spot, waiting in the long queues and respecting the limited opening times of the official institutions.
If you need an apostille, please contact us and we will send you a custom quote within one hour on working days.
