The purpose of an apostille for late resettlers to Germany is to confirm for officials in Germany the authenticity of documents issued by the other countries' civil registry offices. Legalization with such a stamp does not require the participation of consulates and is a guarantee that a birth or marriage certificate will be accepted in another country without any questions. This requires a certified translation of the apostilled document.
An Apostille for Late Resettlers is a rectangular stamp of the official type - a side not less than 9 cm, the title in French "Apostille (Convention de la Haye du 5 octobre 1961)". The apostille is stamped directly at the issuing institution, whatever country it is in. The certificate must be:
- intact, without damage;
- not laminated;
- without corrections or unreadable text;
- name, surname, other columns match exactly the ones in other documents.
