Apostille vs Notarization
A frequently misunderstood distinction is that of an apostille and a notarization. Notarization, in general, is the procedure through which a notary authenticates a document. Usually, notarization takes place in the nation where the document was issued, and the notary confirms that the right person signed the paper. A certificate of authentication issued by a nation’s authentication body or agency, on the other hand, is known as an apostille. The document must subsequently be delivered with the apostille to a foreign nation in order for it to be acknowledged and accepted there.Basically, getting an apostille is easier and faster than getting a notarization. This is so that apostille verification can be completed without a notary being involved—just the consent of the nation that issued the document is needed.
