Apostille for extracts from Spain

Spain acceded to the The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents on 28 September 2004.

Therefore, the documents issued in Spain 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.

In addition, you can order notarised translation from the Spanish language.
