Apostilles streamline the authentication of notarized documents sent between any two nations subscribing to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents of 1961. Working together with the Hague Conference on Private International Law and the International Union of Latin Notaries (IULN), the NNA is now helping to forge an international effort to make this important certificate available electronically.
