On Wednesday 3 August 1994, South Africa deposited its instrument of accession to the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents.
Apostille (pronounced a-pos-TEE) is a french word that means ‘a certify’. A certificate issued under the Apostille Convention authenticating the origin of a public ￼￼￼￼￼document.
Both South Africa and the United States follow the “Hague Apostille Convention” according to which, documents with an apostille are entitled to recognition in any other Convention country.
We offer “same day” Apostille service for all New York counties, except Suffolk county which takes 2-3 business days.
