Apostille your Canadian Document for use in Greece

Apostille your Canadian Document for use in Greece

Canada adopted the Hague Apostille Convention on January 11, 2024, which improved the procedure for Canadians requiring to use official documents in Greece. Apostille from Global Affairs Canada or provincial competent authority can now be used to authenticate Canadian documents, including birth certificates, marriage certificates, business documents, and financial communications. This is a big development. This shift is especially significant for the strong relationship that exists between Greece and Canada, which is highlighted by the fact that more than 250,000 people in Canada are of Greek descent.

Reasons for Needing an Apostille for Greece

When using Canadian documents in Greece, there are several reasons why the Apostille procedure is essential. Applications for citizenship, jobs in Greece, marriage registration, inheritance processes, and business transactions frequently ask for it. An Apostille attests to the validity of the signature, the authority with which the signer has operated, and, if applicable, the identity of the seal or stamp that appears on the document.

Apostille Procedure: A New and Effective Method in Canada

Before, in order to be used in Greece, Canadian documents had to go through a two-step authentication and legalization process that involved Global Affairs Canada verifying the documents and the Greek Embassy or Consulate legalizing them. This could be a difficult and lengthy procedure. This procedure has been replaced with a single-step Apostille certification process, which is quicker and easier to understand, as a result of Canada’s accession to the Hague Apostille Convention.
