Documents certification services in the IE

Document Certification in the Republic of Ireland

Documents certification services in the IE: if you have official documents that were issued by a country other than the Republic of Ireland that you'd like to use in Ireland, then you will need to have them apostilled or legalised by consulate. Similarly, if you have documents that were issued by the Republic that you'd like to use abroad these will also need to be apostilled or legalised by a foreign embassy.

Coddan Formations Agent offers apostille certification services starting from £70.00 that will certificate your Irish documents for use in any foreign country that is a signatory to the 1961 Hague Convention. If you wish to use your documents in a country that has not signed up to the Hague Convention then you will need to have them certified by a notary public and then have them legalised by the authorities of the country in question. This latter stage can generally be undertaken by the target country's consulate or embassy.

The apostille stamp verification system is designed to be simpler than legalisation. The apostille certificate is standardised across all of the countries that have signed the Hague Convention, allowing the relevant authorities to quickly determine whether or not your documents are of good legal standing. Coddan Formations Agent pride ourselves on obtaining apostille certificates swiftly and at reasonable cost.

Documents that may need to be certificated include personal items like birth certificates, certificates of adoption and degree certificates. The likes of your company's memorandum and articles of association, as well as other documents that are necessary for the company to do business, may need to be certificated as well.

A commonly apostilled document that is issued by Companies Registrar in the Republic of Ireland is the certificate of good standing. This will be issued to a company that has been filing all necessary statutory returns in a timely fashion.

The certificate of good standing is often requested by banks when an Irish company seeks to open a bank account in another country. Coddan would seek to have an Irish certificate of good standing apostilled in five to seven days.
