Legalization and Apostilles of Nostrification

To use official documents abroad they require legalization. In most cases, legalization is carried out in the form of the Hague Apostille. For some countries, legalization is carried out in the form of Hague Apostille, which was declared in the Hague Convention of 1961. The countries that acceded to the Convention mutually recognize the legal validity of the Apostille. In those cases where apostille is not an option, academic documents are authenticated. Authentication are notarized and then, county or state officials examine the notary acknowledgement, and finally, the U.S. Department of State certifies the document.
