The adoption of the e-apostille has been increasingly widespread among various countries and authorities, offering a digital solution for authenticating documents internationally.

However, it’s essential to recognise that not every requesting authority within these countries may be familiar with or accept the e-apostille.

Whether you’re an individual seeking to authenticate personal documents for international study or employment or a business professional handling international transactions, the e-Apostille is your gateway to a smoother, more secure experience.

Considerations when using e-apostilles:

  • Awareness of requesting authorities: While many countries have embraced e-apostilles, some requesting authorities within these countries may not be aware of or accept them. It is crucial to check with the specific authority whether an e-apostille suits your needs.
  • Refer to e-Registers: To determine if your country recognises the e-apostille, refer to the below list of countries ↓ and their corresponding e-registers. The e-register is a vital tool for verifying the authenticity and validity of your e-apostille.
  • Not all documents qualify: It’s essential to understand that not all documents are eligible for an e-apostille. Specific criteria must be met, and verifying this beforehand is advisable.
  • Quick turnaround in the UK: In the United Kingdom, e-apostilled documents are typically completed within 24 to 48 hours, showcasing the efficiency of the process.
