If you are a resident of South African who intends to use a public or official document overseas, more often than not, you will need to have this paperwork Apostilled as a means to authenticate the legality of your particular piece of documentation.
Importance of having Documents Apostilled
When you intend to pursue a new job, business travel, marriage and (but not limited to) studies overseas, as a South African citizenship holder living within the Republic, you will need to have your documentation sealed with an Apostille Stamp as proof of authenticity. This is necessary because the nation(s) to which you will be submitting your paperwork, may not have the means to verify your identity – granting you the use of the documentation submitted.
When do you need to Produce an Apostilled Document?
In the event that the nation you’re from (such as South Africa) or the one that is requiring you to produce any official form of identification documents; is a signatory to the Apostille Convention (Convention de La Haye du 5 Octobre 1961), your paperwork will need to be authenticated with an Apostille Stamp or seal of certification to prove that it is legally valid.
Documents that need to be Apostilled
Any official form of documentation that is used to verify your identity and qualifications will require an Apostille Stamp or seal of authentication. Such as:
- Police Clearance Certificates
- Marriage Certificates
- Work Permits
- Academic Transcripts
- Copy of Driver’s License
- Copy of Passport
- Copy of ID
- Letters of No Impediment
- Criminal Background Check Certificates
- (and, but not limited to) Travel Consent Letters
