Jersey Notary | Glossary

The Apostille is an Lieutenant Governor of Jersey issued certificate added to documents so they will be recognised when presented directly  in another country.  They are only applicable for Hague Convention countries. They do not need to follow the formal legalisation process and are in essence a fast track legislation process.
