Apostilled documents are accepted among all Hague Convention states, however Italy is one of the countries that often asks consular attestation of foreign documents after the apostille procedure and translation. Apostilles for Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Portugal, Austria, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Great Britain, the USA, South Korea and Japan are the top ones in terms of documents formalities for study, employment and immigration there. States that don't recognize apostilles in their turn require consular legalization/attestation when a document is certified by an appropriate ministry and then attested by the embassy. China, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia are the top for legalization formalities in Russia.
