Apostille Information

 

 

Apostille in Australia

Australia lodged its Instrument of Accession to The Hague Convention abolishing the requirement for Legalisation of Foreign Public Documents on 9 August 1994. Accession came into force for Australia on 16 March 1995. The apostille is placed either on the back of the document by a rubber stamp or computer generated image or, where there are several pages, these are bound and the apostille is placed on a covering sheet.

Documents include Birth, death and marriage certificates, decrees nisi and educational documents. The fee is 60 AUD.
