On August 30, 2016, Chile has joint the 113 Convention
The Apostille Convention (also known as Apostille Treaty or
Hague Convention), abolishes the requirement of diplomatic or
consular legalization for foreign public documents.
Thus, it replaces the legalization formalities process (chain
certification) with the mere issuance of an Apostille. The
Convention applies only to public documents. These are documents
emanating from an authority or official connected with a court or
tribunal of the State, administrative documents, notarial acts, and
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.
The Apostille facilitates the circulation of public documents
which emanate from one country party and that must be used in
another one (also country party).
Signed on October 5 1961, 113 countries are parties to the
Convention so far, including Argentina. For Chile Republic it
entered into force on August 30, 2016.
