List of Apostille Countries

A list of countries that are parties to the Hague Apostille convention is set out below.  The official list can be found at this link here. You can find out more about Apostilles on Wikipedia.

If the country you intend using the documents in is in this list then in addition to a Notary Public providing his services you will may need to attend the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to obtain an Apostille (French for “certificate”).  The Department charges a fee of $81 (as at 1 July 2018) per document.

If the country is not on this list you may need an Authentication from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.  Our Notary can advise you of your likely requirements regarding Apostille’s and Authentications.  Remember if you have instructions from an overseas lawyer then provide them at the time of your appointment.
