India Apostille for a Canadian business DIN, DSC or PAN Application

Apostille for Canadian Business Documents in India

As of January 11, 2024, Canada's accession to the Hague Apostille Convention has greatly simplified the process of authenticating Canadian business documents for use in India, including for applications requiring a Director Identification Number (DIN), Digital Signature Certificate (DSC), or Permanent Account Number (PAN). With this development, you now need only an Apostille from either Global Affairs Canada or the provincial competent authority for these applications.

At Global Document Solutions, we're experts in handling these procedures and can guide you through the streamlined process. Regardless of your company's location in Canada, you can now bypass the previously complex steps involving multiple jurisdictions and consulates.

Here’s how it works for Canadian directors doing business in India:

  1. Document Preparation: Obtain the necessary documents such as Identity Document, Passport, Director Affidavit, Certificate of Incorporation, and others. These must be notarized by a Canadian Notary.
  2. Apostille: Once notarized, the documents undergo the first step of apostille at Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa or the province. This involves verifying the signatures against their registry and affixing an official stamp and signature.
  3. Ready for use in India: The documents are now ready for use in India, and are the equivalent of attestation/legalization. The Apostille confirms the authenticity of the documents for legal use in India.

With Global Document Solutions, you're assured of efficient and accurate processing, with guidance on fees and additional requirements. Our expertise ensures your documents meet all necessary criteria for acceptance in India.

This advancement represents a significant time and effort saving for Canadian businesses, as it eliminates the need for multiple attestations and legalizations across different jurisdictions. Our team at Global Document Solutions is here to assist you every step of the way, ensuring your business endeavors in India proceed smoothly and efficiently.
