Apostille is a certificate issued by « the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade » verifying the genuineness of the signature or seal of a public officer on a public document.
An Apostille may be required if you wish to use an Irish document outside Ireland.
Note that Apostille only affects public documents issued by a country which has acceded to the Hague Convention and presented by another country which has also acceded to the Convention.
✔ For use in a country which has not acceded to the Convention, a document may need to be legalized. Legalization is a little more complicated.
In Ireland, an Apostille cannot be carried out by Diplomatic or Consular offices abroad but can only be applied to a document by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Most of Apostille concern the following documents:
Administrative certificates and extract from civil status records (e.g. birth, death, marriage certificates)
Educational certificates and qualifications
Court documents, powers of attorney and other notarial acts
