If you need to use your Canadian documents in Bosnia and Herzegovina, you may need to have them authenticated and legalized, also referred to as apostille.
As Canada is not a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention, it is not possible to obtain an apostille on Canadian documents. To be recognized in a foreign country, Canadian documents must be authenticated and legalized.
The authentication and legalization process enables your Canadian documents to be recognized in another country. This two-step process involves first, having your documents authenticated at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFATD). Next, they must be legalized at the diplomatic mission for your destination country.
Avoid the delays and frustration involved with attempting to go through the process on your own. We can process your document in as little as one day, saving you up to six weeks of processing time.
