Is notarised agreement valid?

Spain acceeded to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents in 1978. Therefore, no diplomatic authentication or consular legalization of public documents from Spain is required for successful legal communication with other member states of the Convention. The documents only need to be attested by an apostille certificate with an “apostille” stamp on it by the issuing state’s authorities in order to be valid in the state of destination.

The apostille is a stamp of rectangular shape. It should be filled in in the official language of the issuing authority. The heading “Apostille (Convention de la Haye du 5 octobre 1961)” written in French is a necessary requirement for the apostille’s validity.

Responsible for issuing the apostille are the following institutions:

Supreme Court – judicial documents
Ministry of Justice – public documents
Chamber of Notaries – documents of civil status, notarial copies and translations
Apostille from Spain
The following documents can be authenticated by apostille:
Certificates of civil status (certificates of birth, death, marriage and divorce)
Education documents (school reports, certificates, diplomas)
Trade register excerpts
Court decisions
Notarially certified copies of documents
Notarially certified translations
Further notarial documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
Commercial documents legalized by a state registration body (articles of incorporation, registration certificates, tax registrations etc.)
Requirements for the documents:
The apostille can be exclusively issued for the original document. Therefore, the latter must be presented in good condition, with all stamps and signatures clear and readable. Furthermore, it should not contain alien markings or labels.
