Our efficient services for attestation / authentication / legalization of documents through the Ministry of External Affairs, India:
Whether you are going for higher studies abroad or looking for jobs in foreign countries, attestation is required to prove the origin of your documents / certificates.
Ministry of External Affairs attests all the certificates issued in any state in India; but only after they are attested by the respective regional department of that state government. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs attestation is required on certificates for getting a job in Foreign Countries; and also for the commercial documents for collection of payments from abroad. It authenticates the origin of personal, educational or commercial documents from India.
Since the year 2005, India is a signatory to the Hauge Apostille convention. The Ministry of External Affairs is the nodal Ministry in India (i.e. the only apex body having the sole authority in India) for consular legalization and Apostille of documents for use in India and abroad.
An Apostille is a government issued stamp or sticker applied to the original document, either on the document or on its back. The Apostille issued in New Delhi is a colorful sticker (of approximate size 10x10 cm). It has printed material on it stating who issued it and why. Then 2 stamps are also affixed on the sticker so that no one can peel it off and put on another document. Only the original documents are legalized and not any photo copies. This sticker can also not be put on a laminated document. So please do not get that document laminated before its Apostille attestation.
However these Apostilles can only be used in that country, which is a party to the Hauge convention. There are about 112 such countries, including most of the western world.
If the certificate is intended to be used in “hauge convention countries” like UK, USA & other European Countires, apostille attestation by the Ministry of External Affair in New Delhi (or its sub-offices in India) is compulsory.
Some member countries of the Apostille convention may still require the ‘Apostilled Certificates’ to be translated into the National language of their county or in the English language; especially if the Certificate is in any Indian Language like Hindi, Punjabi, Mathathi, Bengali, Gujrati, Kannad etc.
However, if that certificate is to be used in a non-member country to the Apostille convention, then that certificate is also to be authenticated by the embassy or consulate of that country in India.
The Consular, Passport & Visa (CPV) Division of the Ministry of External Affairs, at Delhi, India, also handles all policy matters (inter alia) related to the Legalisation / Attestation of documents and Registration of births & deaths abroad.
