CONTACT US for help with an irish apostille today
An Apostille is a certificate issued by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade verifying the genuineness of the signature and/or seal of a public officer, on a public document.
An Apostille may be required if you wish to use an Irish document in a country which has acceded to the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents.
An Apostille can only be applied to a document by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. This function cannot be carried out by Irish Diplomatic or Consular officers abroad.
The Apostilles Group can seek and obtain the apostille on your behalf for £95.
If you need solicitor or notary certification first, we can provide this for £200.
A document may need to be Legalised if it is for use in a country which has not acceded to the Hague Convention.
Legalisation is a more complicated process in which a document must:
Be authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade in Ireland, and,
Be authenticated by the diplomatic or consular mission accredited to Ireland of the country in which you wish to use the document.
The Apostilles Group can arrange this service on your behalf. Please get in touch with more details about your document and country of use and we will put together a tailored quote for you.
