What Does Apostille Means?
Basically, the apostille is a certificate that is used to verify the documents for use in the international level. It is a shape of attestation and legalization recognized by countries that are parties to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public papers and documents.
