An Apostille Stamp in Israel

An apostille is a document issued by an authorized authority in a country which authenticates documents in question, ranging from signatures, birth certificates, court orders, or other documents.  This is used to demonstrate that they are valid documents that can be recognized in other countries.  

Countries that can give an apostille must be signatories to the Hague Convention, which essentially says that these countries accept documents from one another as valid.  Israel, and most Western countries, have signed the Hague Convention.  If you live in a country that has not signed the Hague Convention, then the foreign document in question must be brought to an Israeli authority at an Israeli consulate in your country.  If you are interested in a longer article on authenticating documents, see our article Authentication of Documents for Use in Israel.

When Is an Apostille Stamp Required?

When it comes to inheritance law, the documents that would generally require an apostille stamp in the event that they were issued abroad include: death certificate, affidavits, or power of attorney.
