Documents Apostle (MEA)

Document Apostille is a process of validating the authenticity of documents that are to be used in a foreign country. It is done through a stamp or a certificate that is attached to the document by a competent authority in the country where the document was issued. This is particularly required for legal documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, academic degrees, and other such documents.

Here’s how the Document Apostille process works:

  1. Determine the documents: The first step is to determine the documents that need to be apostilled. These are usually documents that are required for legal or official purposes in a foreign country.

  2. Get the documents notarized: Once the documents are determined, they need to be notarized by a Notary Public. The Notary Public is a person authorized by the government to validate legal documents.

  3. Submit the documents for Apostille: Once the documents are notarized, they need to be submitted to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) for Apostille. The MEA is the government agency responsible for legalizing documents for use in foreign countries.

  4. Collect the apostilled documents: After the MEA has authenticated the documents, the apostilled documents can be collected. The documents are now ready for use in a foreign country.

The documents required for the Apostille process can vary depending on the country and the purpose of the document. Generally, documents that are issued by a government agency, such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and academic degrees, are required to be apostilled.

The expenses for Apostille can also vary depending on the country and the number of documents being apostilled. The fee for the Apostille process in India is INR 50 per document.

There is no selection process for the Apostille process, as it is a service provided by the government.

The time required to complete the Apostille process can also vary depending on the country and the number of documents being apostilled. In India, the process usually takes around 2-3 working days.

Any individual or company can help with the Document Apostille process. It is recommended to use a professional service provider to ensure that the process is completed accurately and efficiently. Many travel agencies and visa service providers offer Document Apostille services to their clients.
