Recently, Israel has opened up its borders for specific cases, first-degree family members, weddings, funerals, etc. The Israeli government requires a lot of verification from everyone entering the country. They need many different kinds of documents to ensure that your reason for entry is valid. All of these documents need to be apostilled. What is an apostilled document?

 

What is an Apostilled document?

Certain legal documents are not legalized for use abroad. In the past, the process of making a legal document legal abroad was very complicated. In 1961, many countries gathered and signed the Apostille Treaty. The Apostille Treaty is an international treaty. It specifies the procedure through which a document issued in one of the signatory Countries can be certified for legal purposes in the signatory states. A form that meets the terms of the Treaty is called an apostille. 

An apostille can be affixed if:

  1. Both countries are members states of the Apostille treaty 
  2. The documents are public
  3. The seals and signatures of the documents are readable. 

 

Which countries are a part of the Treaty?

117 countries are included in the Apostille Treaty. These countries include Israel, The United States, The UK, Australia, most of South America (Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Chile, etc.), most of Africa, and most of Europe.

Which document requires an apostille authentication?

Birth certificates – To enter Israel, people must be able to prove that they are first-degree relatives. Every person who wants to enter Israel must show an apostilled birth certificate. 

 

Personal status – To enter Israel, the government requires a personal status document. This is marriage status, divorce, or death certificates. These documents are necessary to approve people's entry into Israel.
