If you are doing business in Bolivia, or perhaps relocating there, you will likely be asked to have your Canadian documents authenticated and legalized, also referred to as apostille.
The authentication and legalization process is necessary for Canadian documents so that the signatures on the documents will be recognized in the destination country. For more information on this process, take a look at this useful article: What is authentication and legalization?
All documents that require legalization at the Embassy of Bolivia must be accompanied by a certified Spanish translation. The translation must be notarized by a Canadian Notary Public and authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFATD). Only then can your documents be submitted to the Embassy of Bolivia for legalization.
