Apostilled extracts from Finland

Finland joined the Hague Convention on simplified legalization of documents on June 27, 1985. On August 26, 1985 the Convention came into force.
Thus, documents issued in Finland are subject to legalization based on the apostilling procedure, after certified translation such documents acquire full legal force on the territory of all other Hague Convention Member States.

As a rule of thumb, apostillation of extracts takes about two weeks.
