Canadian Apostille for use in Andorra

Canadian Apostille for use in Andorra

On January 11, 2024, Canada marked a significant milestone in international document validation by joining the Hague Apostille Convention. This development simplifies the process of authenticating Canadian documents for use in Andorra, among other countries, streamlining activities such as business operations, work assignments, immigration procedures, banking transactions, and family matters that necessitate official documentation across borders.

Understanding the Apostille Process

The Apostille process is a simplified method of document authentication recognized by countries that are parties to the Hague Apostille Convention. For Canadians, whether individuals or businesses, this means that documents no longer need to undergo the lengthy and often complex process of authentication and legalization to be recognized in Andorra. Instead, an Apostille from Global Affairs Canada or a provincial competent authority, depending on where the document was issued, will suffice. This list includes Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan.
