Canadian Apostille for use in Kazakhstan

Canadian Apostille for use in Kazakhstan

Canada's recent accession to the Hague Apostille Convention on January 11, 2024, marks a significant advancement in the simplification of international document authentication processes for Canadians and Canadian entities. This development is particularly beneficial for those seeking to use Canadian documents officially in Kazakhstan, as it streamlines the previously complex procedure of document legalization into a single-step Apostille certification.

Understanding the Apostille Process

The Apostille process is designed to authenticate the seals and signatures of officials on public documents such as birth certificates, court orders, or any other document issued by a public authority, so that they can be recognized in countries that are members of the Hague Apostille Convention. With Canada’s accession, obtaining an Apostille for documents intended for use in Kazakhstan has become more straightforward. Depending on the document's origin within Canada, the Apostille can be issued by Global Affairs Canada or the competent provincial authority in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, or Saskatchewan.

Why an Apostille for Kazakhstan?

Kazakhstan, being a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention, requires the Apostille authentication for a range of documents from Canada for various purposes, including:

  • Business: Contracts, CRA certificate of residency, agreements, and patents to establish or conduct business operations.
  • Work: Employment contracts, police check or professional qualifications for expatriates working in Kazakhstan.
  • School: Academic diplomas, certificates, and transcripts for students applying to Kazakhstani institutions or for recognition of qualifications.
  • Family Matters: Birth certificates, adoption papers, and documents related to family law cases.
  • Marriage: Marriage certificates for couples planning to marry or register their marriage in Kazakhstan.

Types of Documents Requiring an Apostille

Virtually any Canadian public document can require an Apostille for use in Kazakhstan, including but not limited to:

  • Personal documents: Birth, marriage, and death certificates.
  • Educational documents: Degrees, diplomas, and school transcripts.
  • Legal documents: Court orders, affidavits, and powers of attorney.
  • Corporate documents: Articles of incorporation, financial statements, and patent applications.
