Apostille a Power of Attorney for India

India is known for its diverse culture, breathtaking landscapes, and history of religion that will leave you content and fulfilled. It’s understandable why you own property there. But what happens if you are in the United States and need to sell your land in India? It is common to have a family member who resides in India to help you sell your house or property. You must fill out and submit official paperwork for this to happen. We can help you apostille a power of attorney for India.

Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is a legal document allowing another person to act on your behalf. You can have a Special Power of Attorney that gives the person limited powers, such as to sell your house and no other transactions on your behalf.

For a power of attorney to be used in India, it must receive an apostille and certified translations.

For a power of attorney to be accepted in India, it must be:

  • A valid legal document, not a handwritten note
  • Dated
  • Contain no missing or corrected information

Once you have this, you can then begin the apostille process.

What is an Apostille?

An apostille verifies the authenticity of a document. All countries that are members of the Hague Convention of 1961 accept the apostille as a form of authentication. All non-member countries require the document to receive embassy legalization before it is accepted.

In 2005, India became a member and accepted the apostille.

To Apostille a Power of Attorney for India

There are several steps needed to apostille a power of attorney for India.

  • You can work with a lawyer to ensure the power of attorney document is filled in correctly and gives the person only the powers you wish.
  • Once you have a legally bound and notarized power of attorney, you will then submit the apostille application and the document to the Secretary of State, where it was written and notarized.
  • When successful, the Secretary of State will return the document and the apostille to you. This process may take several weeks.
  • Now that you have the power of attorney and the attached apostille, you must send it all to another company to be translated into the required language. And you must wait again for them to return all documents.

Whew… there are a lot of steps to the apostille process… and many places for errors to happen.
