As a South African ex-pat living in the Philippines, you may need to have your documents apostilled for immigration purposes. An apostille is a special type of authentication that is required when you need to present your documents to an authority in a foreign country.

What Is an Apostille

An apostille is a type of authentication that is used to verify the authenticity of a document. It is an official certification that is issued by a government agency and is recognized internationally under the Hague Convention. The apostille stamp or certificate is attached to a document to certify that the document is genuine and has been issued by a competent authority. 


The purpose of an apostille is to make it easier for countries to accept official documents from other countries without the need for further authentication. An Apostille is typically required for legal documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, educational certificates, and other official documents that need to be used in a foreign country.
