Please note: For authentication purposes in Ireland, an Apostille Stamp is NOT required for documents issued in Ireland.
Foreign governments and organisations sometimes require that documents are authenticated before they can be accepted. Please check with the Embassy for which the document is required before requesting one. If an individual was born outside of Ireland, an authenticated birth certificate may be required, even if you are entitled to an Irish passport. The Hague Convention (1961) specifies how a document issued in one of the signatory countries can be authenticated or certified for legal purposes in all the other signatory states.
Note – Timelines: Although we typically get Certificates with Apostille Stamps issued within circa 5 working days, during peak times it can take slightly longer. We therefore strongly recommend that in order to avoid any potential delays, please submit your request as early as possible.
To order an Apostille Stamp simply select the “Certificate with Apostille Stamp” at the end of our certificates submission forms. If you select this and then find out during the order process that you do not require an Apostille Stamp, please ensure that you change the product you chose from “Certificate with Apostille Stamp” to “Certificate” as this will reflect in the charges applied.
If you have purchased certificate from us and we are still processing your order, it may be possible to add a stamp before we dispatch your order. For more information please phone our Customer Services Dept on +353 1 801 33 33.
