India, as the second most populous state in the world, is in high demand of apostille and attestation and authentication services in the world. Thousands of people go from India for study and employment purposes while many expats go to India for business and other related affairs. As India is a party to the Hague Apostille Convention abolishing requirements of legalization of public documents, it’s enough just to apostille your diploma, degree, supplement, transcript, certificate, birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce certificate, death certificate, power of attorney, affidavit, police clearance certificate, contract, agreement, invoice, charter, articles of association, memorandum and many other educational, personal and commercial documentation issued in any Hague Apostille Convention signatory state like Italy, Spain, France, Germany, UK, Ireland, USA, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Oman, Bahrain, Morocco, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Panama, the Philippines, the Republic of South Africa etc.
However, other countries being not parties to the above-mentioned Hague Apostille Convention like the United Arab Emirates/ UAE, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia/ KSA, Qatar, Kuwait, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Algeria, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Canada require more complicated verification, namely consular legalization and attestation procedures.
Meanwhile documents issued in any state and city of India — Delhi, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Surat, Pune, Jaipur, Agra, Raipur and many other cities and regions of India should be first certified by a local notary and then apostilled by Ministry of External Affairs of India. This type of attestation and authentication relates to such personal documents as birth certificates, marriage certificates, divorce certificates, powers of attorney, affidavits and others. But educational documents, diploma, supplement, degree, certificate, transcript, need additional verification and attestation by HRD Department of the exact state of issue in India prior to apostille procedure at Ministry of External Affairs of India.
