The Hague Convention (1961) is an International Treaty that aims to ease the authentication process of documents, so they can be used abroad. Thus, the Apostille is a formal act that ensures the authenticity of public acts issued in a contracting State and shall be presented in the territory of another contracting State of the same Convention, conferring them probative value.

Where can I get the Hague Apostille and how long does it take?

The location and how long it takes to obtain the Hague Apostille depends on your country of origin. You should check with the responsible entities in your country of origin.

If you want to send the original certificate, the LSDM does not return it, as it is required for the student’s documents file, so we recommend that you get the 2nd copy of your qualifications certificate so you can keep the original.
