An apostille is a certification provided under the Hague Convention of 1961 for authenticating documents from the city of Lausanne for use in foreign countries. The sole function is to certify the authenticity of the signature of the document. Put simply, an apostille is a certificate that is attached to another document so that it will be accepted when used overseas. ABC Translation takes care of undertaking this administrative procedure by working with the prefecture without making an appointment. We need the original documents that you can send by post or bring directly to the office.
