This service of the company PredictaBill is responsible for managing and obtaining the necessary apostille so that the documents of its clients are recognized and accepted abroad in a legal and valid way. This facilitates international legal formalities and processes, ensuring the validity and authenticity of documents.

Do you need Apostilles with authentication?

When a client requires the Apostilles service with authentication, it is usually because they need to legalize documents that are not yet authenticated for use abroad. Apostilles are certifications that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs attaches to official documents, such as birth certificates, marriage certificates or academic degrees, to validate their authenticity and international recognition, or duly authenticated private documents. These apostilles are necessary in cases such as applying for visas, studying abroad, or carrying out legal procedures in other countries. PredictaBill is responsible for managing and obtaining the corresponding apostilles, ensuring that the documents comply with legal requirements and are ready for use abroad in one of the countries that are part of the Hague Convention on the Apostille.
