When Apostille Required?

Documents acceptable for apostille

The High Court of Hong Kong provides apostille service. We may act as your agent to get an apostille on your oversea document.

Documents accepted for apostille service in Hong Kong are broadly classified into the following two categories:

  1. Documents signed by a notary public or a Commissioner for Oaths in Hong Kong. For example, (a) Notary Public - Power of Attorney: Certified true copy (b) Commissioner for Oaths: Declaration. Therefore, documents signed and sealed by our Notary Public are acceptable for apostille by the authority in Hong Kong.
  2. Public documents bearing the true signature of an official party such as a Hong Kong SAR Government recognized officer. For example:
    1. Marriage Certificate, ie. certificates signed by Deputy Registrar of Marriage (For certificates signed by civil celebrants or issued by the church/temple, please obtain a certified true copy from the Record Office of the Marriage Registry) 
    2. Certificate of Absence of Marriage Record
    3. Birth and Death Certificate - Certificate of Registered Particulars
    4. Business Registration Certificate
    5. Certificate of Incorporation (With effect from 16 January 2012, applicant shall attach a print-out of the relevant company search made within 3 working days to each of the original copy of the ‘Certificate of Incorporation', 'Certificate of Change of Company Name', 'Certificate of Continuing Registration', or 'Certificate issued under section 305(1) of the Companies Ordinance', etc. issued by the Registrar of Companies to be apostilled. Photocopy of the print-out is acceptable.)
