What is Notary Attestation
Notary Attestation is the first step in the attestation process for use of documents internationally. Notary Attestation plays a crucial role in verifying personal documents like birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, power of attorney, legal heirship documents, affidavits etc. for international verification. These personal documents require attestation when applying for resident visa, spouse visa, educational or employment opportunities abroad.
Notary Attestation is the primary process in attesting the personal documents. Only after getting Notary Attestation, we can get other types of Attestation required for the specific country.
The Procedure of Attestation is as follows:
- Notary Attestation: Personal documents must be attested by a Notary in the state of issuance. After notary attestation, they should be further attested by the respective state home department.
- MEA Attestation: After notary attestation, the documents need to be attested by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA). If the destination country is a member of the Hague Convention, MEA Apostille attestation is required. For non-Hague member countries, regular MEA attestation is carried out.
- Embassy Attestation: Following MEA attestation, embassy attestation becomes necessary for international travel. However, embassy attestation is not obligatory for Hague member countries.
- MOFA Attestation: Upon arrival in the destination country, MOFA attestation takes place. Please verify specific details regarding MOFA attestation for your particular destination.
It is important to note that the procedures may vary from country to country. Please contact Leaves International for more details.
