  • Before submitting your application, you must confirm if you need to attach the original legalized document with the corresponding apostille along with the translated document.
  • If the document has an electronic signature from a public organization, you may legalize it or get the apostille in the “Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores” (MINREL). It is important for you to translate the document.
  • If the document has a physical signature and it is going to be submitted in a country that is not part of the Haya Agreement countries of 1961, you must legalize it and get the apostille at the corresponding  institution.
