What is an Apostille stamp?

The Apostille stamp is essentially a legalisation stamp which proves a document’s authenticity, it confirms that a signature, stamp or raised seal  on a public document is indeed genuine.


Typical reasons an Apostille stamp would be required.

You might be planning to marry abroad, buying an overseas property, planning to work abroad or conducting business transactions, in these instances it would be usual that officials would request the Apostille stamp.
