What Is An Apostille? And How Does Apostille And Consular Legalisation In Kuwait Differ From Other Countries?

 The Apostille is an official certificate that is issued by the government of one country and added onto documents to allow them to be recognised officially if they’re presented to an overseas authority.

If a document has the Apostille on it, all the seals and signatures that it contains are confirmed as genuine. This means they can be accepted in any country recognising the Apostille as valid and authentic without needing to provide any extra evidence.

Documentation issued in the UK or Ireland that is intended for use in Kuwait needs to not only receive an Apostille but also extra legalisation from the Kuwait embassy. Corporate and personal documentation will need to be attested by the Kuwait embassy in order to be accepted in that country.

Which Documents Require An Apostille And Legalisation For Use In Kuwait?

 Documents that are usually legalised and apostilled for use in Kuwait include a range of civil documents such as marriage, birth, and death certificates, documents that refer to legal matters, and business records such as tax registration certificates.

The documents which can be apostilled and legalised for use in Kuwait include:

  • Marriage, death, birth, and divorce certificates
  • Copy passports
  • Police clearance and criminal record certificates
  • Visa medical reports
  • Power of attorney
  • Driving license
  • Educational certificates
  • Commercial register extracts
  • Notarised document translations and copies
  • Decisions from the court
  • Official business records

 What Are The Differences Between Consular Legalisation Of Documents And Apostille?

 Apostille and legalisation are similar terms, but there are differences. While both terms refer to document legalisation in order for a document from one country to be recognised as valid in another, the processes aren’t the same.

An Apostille is a government-issued stamp attached to a document in one country that is a member of the Apostille Convention in order for that document to be recognised as valid in another member nation. Consular or embassy legalisation, meanwhile, certifies a document so that it can be accepted as valid and true in a country that isn’t a member of the Apostille Convention. Usually, embassy legalisation is needed for documents that have already been apostilled, but which need to be used in a non-member nation such as Kuwait.

Kuwait demands that documentation be presented to a local consulate or embassy so an additional level of legalisation can be obtained in order to verify the preliminary certification. The process can be quite complex and has to be carried out in person, so using professional agents is always a good idea.
