WHEN

DO WE NEED TO AUTHENTICATE A DOCUMENT?

It is obligatory to authenticate foreign documents in order to validate official documents in Spain, except those from countries which have signed international agreements or treaties which are exempt from authenticating the documents. The procedure depends on the country issuing the official documents.
- In countries which have signed the Hague Convention, the Apostille is enough to authenticate official documents.
- In countries which have not signed the Hague Convention, the authentication of the documents varies in each country.
