The latest replenishment to the Convention countries

Apostille the Hague Convention – new countries​​For the last 3 years next countries accepted the Convention:

  • Bahrain.
  • Nicaragua.
  • Tajikistan (The Parliament approved the Convention ratification in the autumn of 2014).
  • The Republic of Kosovo - from July 14, 2016

During the last time fewer countries accept the Apostille Convention.

We hope that soon we will not need to go to embassies, and all questions on legalization will be closed only through ministries!
