Apostille Documents in South Africa: Your official documents are authenticated using a stamp called Apostille. The Foreign Affairs department of countries who are members of the Hague Convention, issue Apostille to authenticate certificates belonging to respective countries. Once authenticated your certificates are declared genuine.

Legalization: Legalization process is an alternative to Apostille and becomes mandatory if the country you intend to use your document is not a member of the Hague convention or not a signatory to the Apostille convention. The embassy of such countries makes the process of legalization necessary.

Translations: Translations become mandatory in countries where the language used in your certificate is not accepted as a common language. Hence the government authorities will need translation of your certificate. We at World Attestation are capable of translating any language to any required language which follows the guidelines of concerned government bodies or embassies.

Notarization:Notarization is a mandatory procedure whenever attestation is required for any document. It is always better to keep a notarized copy attested so that the original remains intact. We can carry out notarization depending upon the country’s requirement and the purpose of using your document. In simple terms, notarization means verification of a document for it to be considered valid and legal.
