The Philippines 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.

Why do I need document attestation?

Document attestation in the Philippines is often required when you need to use your documents in a foreign country for purposes such as employment, education, immigration, business transactions, or legal matters. It ensures that your documents are recognized and accepted by the authorities in the destination country.



What types of documents require attestation?

Various types of documents may require attestation, including personal documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, educational certificates, and commercial documents such as invoices, contracts, and articles of association.




What is the difference between legalization and apostille?

Legalization and apostille both serve the same purpose of authenticating documents for use in foreign countries. However, apostille is a simplified form of legalization that is recognized among countries that are part of the Hague Convention of 1961, whereas legalization involves a more extensive process for countries outside the Hague Convention.



How long does the document attestation process take?

The time required for document attestation can vary depending on factors such as the type of document, the country of issuance, and the specific requirements of the destination country. It is advisable to consult with a professional service provider for an accurate estimate of processing times.



Can I handle document attestation on my own?

While it is possible to handle document attestation on your own, it can be a complex and time-consuming process, especially if you are unfamiliar with the requirements and procedures involved. Working with a professional attestation service provider can streamline the process and ensure compliance with all necessary regulations.
