For the purpose of authentication services, countries are divided in two groups. Those that are signatories to the 1961 Hague convention require apostille, others would need an embassy legalization.
To know whether you would need an apostille or embassy legalization just need to mention the country where you need the document.
The Apostille is a formality issued over a public document which certifies its authenticity, authenticating the signature of the person who has issued the document, his qualification and, if necessary, the seal or stamp contained in the document.
The apposition of the Apostille is foreseen at the article 3 of the Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents, done at The Hague on 5th October 1961, and only applies to public documents to be presented before countries that have taken part of the aforesaid Convention.
The Apostille shall be issued by the authority of the State who has issued the original document.
The system established by the mentioned Convention created a simpler and faster international validation of public documents procedure than the general method of legalisation of foreign documents.
