New Zealand Certificate Attestation | Legalization | Apostille Services

New Zealand is an island country in Oceania. It is a developed country with a diverse market-based economy with a high human development index. Wellington is the capital and one of the most populous cities in New Zealand. To explore the opportunities for career, education, and business out of this country, you need an Apostille completed in a due format within the prescribed timelines. This is where you need an expert guide like BVS Global to make this process simple for you.

An Apostille is affixed to the front page of the documents submitted for this purpose. This stamp validates the authenticity of signatures on the public documents issued in a member country. With this authentication, the process of immigration can be largely streamlined. Therefore, it should be completed within the prescribed formats. The New Zealand government follows the standard procedures specified for members of Hague Convention. The Embassy officials may have some additional requirements that should be met by the applicants.

What is  Legalization or Attestation?


Legalization or Attestation is the process by which government authorities officially endorse a document assuring the receiving country or organization of its authenticity. Likewise, it typically involves two or three levels of attestations across government departments in both countries for New Zealand documents.

Why do you need certificate attestation and Legalization?

We provide New Zealand document legalization or Apostille, for any type of New Zealand issued documents for use in any country. However, the process may vary depending on the document and the laws of the origin & destination country. The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs stamp can be replaced by an Apostille, if the origin and destination countries are part of Hague convention 1961. Original certificates required for some countries; a true copy / certified copy would suffice for attestation.

Acceptance or rejection of documents is solely based on discretion of the government authorities concerned. Furthermore, the requirements and processes vary often depending on the government department’s policies, terms and conditions. Please contact our customer service officer for updated fee structure and more information on legalization.

Our Frequently Asked Questions

BVS Global has years of experience in handling attestation of valuable certificates and documents legitimately, keeping in mind the security concerns and customer requirements.

What is the difference between legalization and apostille for documents?

Legalization involves a multi-step process where documents are authenticated by various authorities, including government departments and embassies, to verify their authenticity for international use. On the other hand, an apostille is a simplified form of legalization recognized by countries that are part of the Hague Convention, requiring only a single authentication certificate.



Can BVS Global assist with document legalization for countries not part of the Hague Convention?

Yes, BVS Global provides comprehensive legalization services for documents destined for countries outside the Hague Convention. This involves a thorough authentication process through government departments and embassies to ensure the documents are legally recognized.



How long does the document legalization process typically take?   

The timeframe for document legalization can vary depending on factors such as the type of document, destination country, and specific requirements of the authorities involved. BVS Global can provide guidance on the expected timeline for your specific case.



What is the role of notary attestation in the document legalization process?  

Notary attestation is often the first step in the document legalization process, where a notary public verifies the authenticity of signatures or seals on the document. This attestation serves as a preliminary authentication before further legalization steps.



What are the potential consequences of using unattested documents for international purposes?   

Using unattested documents for international purposes can result in rejection of visa applications, legal complications, delays in business transactions, and other serious consequences. Make sure that your documents are properly legalized to avoid such issues.
