Macedonia acceded to the The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents on 24 April 1965, as a part of Yugoslavia.
Therefore, the documents issued in Macedonia are subject to a simplified apostilling procedure, thus the documents gain full legal value in Convention member states after notarised translation.
Apostilling usually takes about two weeks.
