Legalisation of documents by Apostille is a process used to attest thereto that a Document conforms to the Legal Requirements of its Country of Origin and that the signatures on such a document is that of a person or persons whom were authorised to sighn such document. This process is followed by member countries or signatories to the Protocol of the La hague Convention of 1961.


The Apostille process can be cumbersome and are full of Legal pitfalls but we at GMTM Consultants make Document Compliance for use outside of South Africa Simple.

To provide Legal validity to a South African Official document for use outside South Africa, Consular Notarial services are rendered which are known as the Legalisation process. This process means that the documents are affixed and sealed with either a Apostille Certificate or a Certificate of Authentication. In Essence it means that the signatures on documents are verified.


Note:  Information on the Apostille Convention - The Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 (Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents) can be obtained http://www.hcch.net, including the list of signatories.

 

In South Africa the Department of International Relations and Co-Operation also known as DIRCO, Consular Notarial Services does the Legalisation of Official (Public) documents. (Formerly known as the Department of Foreign Relations) are the administrators of this process. DIRCO has a Data base of all the authorised signatories of official documents in South Africa. This means that if a document is signed by an official whom signature is registered the document is deemed as a legal document. The Type of document and the target country dictates the process.


The following types original official (public) documents can be Legalised direct by DIRCO provided they adhere to the legal requirements:

 • Home Affairs Documents.

   - Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates.

   - Letter of No Impediment ( Free to Marry) not older than 3 months.

   - Citizenship Confirmation

   - Naturalization
