• Hague Member States

    The Hague Apostille Convention was signed in Hague on October 5, 1961, and entered into force on January 24, 1965. Currently there are 102 member states. Documents meant for these countries only require an apostille from the Secretary of State. For countries which are not signatories to the Hague Convention of 1961, reports are needed to go through the confirmation process affirming the credibility of the record prior to being introduced in the country of use.
