The Hague Apostille Convention is officially known as The Hague Convention of 5 October 1961, Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents. It was drafted by the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH) and has been signed by about 100 countries including Australia. In the Convention, public documents are considered to be:

  • • Documents emanating from an authority or an official connected with the courts or tribunals of the State, including those emanating from a public prosecutor, a clerk of a court or a process-server (“huissier de justice”)
  • • Administrative documents
  • • Notarial Acts
  • • Official certificates which are placed on documents signed by persons in their private capacity, such as official certificates recording the registration of a document or the fact that it was in existence on a certain date and official and notarial authentications of signatures.

In respect of countries for which the Convention has come in to force, you no longer need to have your document legalised by an individual country’s diplomatic or consular service. Instead, you simply need to present your notarised document to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) which will check that the signature and seal provided by your Notary Public is authentic. Once the Notary’s signature and seal are verified, DFAT will place an Apostille on your document. An Apostille is a certificate/stamp that includes DFAT’s seal to show that the notarisation is authentic.

Regional Accreditation vs. National Accreditation

Public and private universities and colleges that offer a wide range of programs typically hold regional accreditation. To receive regional accreditation, a university must pass a peer review by faculty and administrators from similar institutions.

Another type of accreditation, national accreditation, is provided by accrediting agencies that are generally single-purpose, narrow in scope, or vocational in nature. Large public colleges and universities do not typically hold national accreditation, though they may have individual programs that are nationally accredited. Los Angeles University of California is proud to hold both regional and national accreditation.

Apostille is a professional certificate issued by the Secretary of State. This document is attached to confirm the legality and authenticity of other educational documents, in order for all the member states of the Hague Apostille Convention to recognize and accept it. A total of 117 countries are part of the The Hague Apostille Convention and each one requires an Apostille by the Secretary of State of the Department of Higher Education of the United States (United States Department of State).The apostille is required by all of the 50 states in the US.
