Canadian Apostille for use in Romania
In a significant move towards simplifying the international legalization of documents, Canada has joined the Hague Apostille Convention as of January 11, 2024. This development marks a pivotal shift in the process of authenticating official Canadian documents for use in Romania, among other countries.. This article will delve into the nuances of the Apostille process, particularly focusing on its implications for Canadian documents used in Romania, and highlight why Global Document Solutions, with over 30 years of expertise, is your premier choice for navigating this new landscape.
Understanding the Apostille Process
The Apostille process is an international certification procedure, established by the Hague Convention of 1961, which allows documents issued in one signatory country to be legally recognized in another. With Canada's accession to this convention, the requirement for lengthy and often cumbersome embassy or consular legalization processes for Canadian documents used in Romania is eliminated. Now, a single Apostille stamp or sticker from Global Affairs Canada or the respective provincial competent authority suffices.
