Apostille Convention in Force


The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalization for Foreign Public Documents, known as the Apostille Convention, has entered into force in Nicaragua on May 14, 2013.

The Apostille Convention is a method that simplifies the legalization of foreign documents in order to verify its authenticity, reducing time and costs.

With this addition, currently the Latin-American countries member of the Apostille Convention are: Argentina, Belize, Costa Rica, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay and Venezuela.

It is important to remember that the Apostille is valid only among countries that have signed the Convention.
Nicaragua will maintain the legalization process with those countries that are not part of the Apostille Convention yet.
