Legalization – Brazil, Chile and Morocco join the Hague Apostille Convention.

Brazil, Chile and Morocco are joining the Hague Apostille Convention in August, thereby simplifying the legalization of documents.

The dates of entry takes effect as follows:
Brazil, August 14th 2016.
Morocco, August 14th 2016.
Chile,  August 30th 2016.
 
After these dates, documents issued in other member countries will only require an Apostille to be valid.
 
Please note, that documents with an Apostille, dated prior to the entry dates should still be valid as long as it is submitted to the local entities after the entry date.
Comet do advise all to check with their local partners first, as the validity may vary depending on type of document and member country.
