It may be the first time you have heard of an Apostille Certificate. An Apostille Certificate is only required if you have dealings outside South Africa involving some official paperwork. Apostilles are required for work, business, legal issues and personal matters. The most common requirements for an Apostille Certificate are overseas marriage, registering births, working or teaching abroad, foreign property purchases and business transactions or contracts.

This website has been produced to help you obtain the Apostille Legalisation Certificate and stamp from the correct government office efficiently and to provide you with more information. Please use this site as a resource, but should you need to speak to an advisor, do not hesitate to call us on our South African phone number 087 0010 733 or see our full contact details on our contact us page.

It typically takes 24 hours to 30 days for the South African Apostille Certificate to be attached to your document. We pride ourselves on offering expert service, ensuring your document is legalised appropriately.

There are often several ways to legalise a document, but typically only one method will be accepted by the country the document is intended for. This is where our service comes into its own; our vast experience ensures your document is taken by the authority you intend to present your legalised document.
