Apostilling Documents in Greece
The documents issued by public authorities, as well as local self-government, can be used in another country only after their identification is established by law.
The Hague Convention, signed on October 5, 1961, established the most common way of processing documents used in order to provide documents abroad. This procedure is to affixing the Apostille stamp.
As of today, the Convention is attended by more than 100 countries around the world.
Apostilling a document in Greece is a procedure for additional control and document verification. Briefly: the essence of the Apostille is that it is a special stamp certifying the authenticity of a signature or seal under a document issued by a government agency of the States-parties to the Convention.
Articles 2 and 3 of the Convention state that all participating States exempt each other from the legalization of documents covered by this Convention and that will be submitted in the territory of another state. The only restriction in this case is the need to provide authentication of the signature of the official or the seal of the body that issued the document.
The Convention also specifies that a document bearing the stamp of an Apostille does not require additional processing and can be used in any State-party of the Convention.
Depending on the jurisdiction of the document, the Apostille is stamped in the relevant ministries. One of the typical errors in apostilling documents is the affixing Apostille in the wrong ministry. An incorrectly apostilled document can not be accepted by foreign state authorities.
