In 1965, the Hague Conference on Private International Law drafted the Apostille Treaty, which said that a legal document issued in one territory would be considered valid in any other foreign territory as long as both nations were signatories of the treaty.
In order to do this, the person seeking to utilize the legal document must provide an apostille, or international certification, which is essentially equivalent to a notarization—and in fact, usually supplements the local notarization of their original document. This apostille certifies the validity of the legal document to the foreign government, on behalf of the local government, and allows for its legal use in that country without further certification by both countries.
