  • INFORMATION ON THE AUTHENTICATION OF DOCUMENTS ISSUED BY INDIAN AUTHORITIES

    Indian public documents (judiciary documents, administrative documents, notarized documents, and official certificates) need to be APOSTILLED in order to be considered legal in Poland.

     

    Apostille is a certification on the basis of which public documents  executed in the territory of one Contracting State will be considered legal in the territory of another Contracting State.

    More detailed information on Apostille on: http://www.hcch.net/

     

     How to get an apostille?

     

    Apostille may only be issued by a Competent Authority designated by the State on whose territory the public document has been executed. You can find full list of authorities on: http://www.hcch.net/.

     

    Poland and India are both parties to the Hague Convention of 5th October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents (Hague Apostille Convention).

     

    Regarding this, all Indian public documents (birth, marriage and death certificates, affidavits, power of attorney, degrees and diplomas, judiciary documents (divorce, adoption etc) which are to be used in Poland need to bear Indian apostille which can be obtained at CPV ( Consular, Passport  & Visa)  Division of Ministry of External Affairs, Patiala House, New Delhi - 110001, (e-mail: dcpf@mea.gov.in), website:
