Apostille for Belgium

Belgium joined the hague nation on February 9, 1973. Since then it accepts apostille documents legal document and no further legalization is required.

An Apostille is simply a certification of Document issued by a legal or registered authority in a country. If a document is Apostilled it shows that the document is verified and is legal to use in the country to which it is Apostilled. For each country there is a different Apostille. List  of countries where the Apostille is Accepted are known as Hague nation.

If you already have Apostille to some country (eg- Germany) and want to use that document in some other country ( eg Poland ) , You should again get Apostille to Poland you cannot use the same old German Apostille.

There are three main verification that needs to be done to get Apostille to documents.

  • State Authorisation from concerned state department or secretariat.
  • MEA Apostille

There is one more step involved finally if the country you want to get apostille is not a Hague nation.

  • Legalization from Embassy of the Country ( only if country is not in Hague Convention)

MEA directly does not accepts any document for Apostille, need to go through our Agency.
We are certified from MEA to get Apostille for you.
