Marriage Certificate Attestation in India.

Marriage Certificate Apostille is nothing but the legalization of your marriage certificate to confirm its credibility overseas. The word ‘Apostille’ refers to a sticker or certificate given by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in order to prove the authenticity of a document in a foreign country. A marriage certificate is a legal proof of marriage and if you are planning to immigrate overseas on a work visa or employment visa or spouse dependent visa, the authorities in the foreign country would need proof to confirm your marriage. Although getting a Marriage Certificate Apostille appears to be easy on paper, it is not that easy in reality. It involves dealing with various government departments and agencies. In order to make things convenient, BVS Global offers exceptional marriage certificate Apostille services.

Marriage Certificate Apostille plays a role in proving the authenticity of your document in an overseas country. If you wish to apply for a temporary or permanent residency abroad, Marriage Certificate Apostille is mandatory. Marriage Certificate Apostille is required for those countries that are a part of the Hague Convention. There are 117 countries that are a part of the Hague Apostille Convention. If you are married and planning to shift with your spouse to any of the Hague Convention countries, Marriage Certificate Apostille is a must.

Marriage Certificate Apostille involves affixing an apostille stamp or sticker on the back of the original marriage certificate. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) is the only authorized body to issue apostille stamps for documents in India. The Marriage Certificate Apostille stamp issued by the MEA is unique and has a unique identification number. Using this identification number, any member nation of the Hague Convention can check for the genuineness of the certificate.
