Hague Convention

Newest Members of the Hague Convention of 1961

The Hague Convention of 1961 is officially known as Abolishing the Requirement of Legislation for Foreign Public Documents – but it is commonly called the Apostille Convention. Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are about to become the newest members of the Hague Convention of 1961.

What is an Apostille?

An apostille confirms the authenticity of a document. All member countries recognize the apostille as a way to confirm the validity of the paperwork. Before the Apostille Convention, each country in the world required all documents to go through their embassies to ensure the document were authentic. And even today, all non-member countries still require embassy legalization.

Newest Members of the Hague Convention of 1961

On December 7th, 2022, Saudi Arabia officially joined the convention to ease market entry and promote the growth of the private sector.

And Pakistan will become the 123rd member of the Hague Convention of 1961 on March 9th, 2023.

How This Changes Things

Those doing business or traveling to these countries will now see an easier and faster way to validate necessary documents. You will no longer be required to submit your papers to the embassy, request authentication, and wait for a reply.

Each country also hopes to see an increase in business due to removing the hurdle of embassy legalization of documents.
