Mexico Canada Apostille Guide

Validation of Canadian Documents for Use in Mexico with Canada’s Apostille Process

As of January 11, 2024, Canada's joining of the Hague Apostille Convention has greatly simplified the process of using Canadian documents in Mexico. Now, an Apostille from either Global Affairs Canada or the provincial competent authority is all that's needed. This development significantly eases the challenges faced in getting Canadian documents recognized in Mexico, a task that has been essential yet complex due to the strong and growing ties between the two nations.

Over our 30 years of experience, working closely with the Embassy of Mexico in Ottawa, we've witnessed firsthand the myriad reasons for this need – from Canadians getting married in Mexico, to real estate transactions, and pharmaceutical companies navigating regulatory affairs. With this new change, the previously required process of authentication and legalization is replaced by a more streamlined Apostille procedure, making it more straightforward for Canadians to manage their official documents for use in Mexico.

Our Official Guide to Using Canadian Documents in Mexico, offered by Global Document Solutions, provides valuable insights into this new process. It includes resource articles for common scenarios such as marriage in Mexico, real estate transactions, and health insurance applications, along with specific details on the Apostille process.
