A document apostilled by one member country of Hague Convention is accepted by all other member countries of the Convention.

The Ministry of External Affairs outsourced its Apostille/Attestation services from March 1, 2012. After outsourcing of collection and delivery of documents by MEA, no documents for apostille are accepted by MEA directly. The original document is to be submitted directly to the outsourced agencies along with a photocopy of the document and a photocopy of the Passport of the applicant for Apostille India.
