Apostille

The Apostille-stamp confirms the validity of a public official’s signature.

The Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 makes it possible for official documents from one of the countries that has joined the convention to become valid in one of the other countries that has joined the convention, by the application of an Apostille-stamp. Both Norway, Cyprus and Greece have joined the convention.

The Apostille-stamp confirms the validity of a public official’s signature. The Apostille-stamp does not confirm the correctness of the document's content.
