If you have Canadian documents that you need to use in Turkey these documents may require the Canadian equivalent of an apostille. Canada’s equivalent to the apostille process is called document authentication and legalization. The last step of this process involves legalizing your documents with the Embassy of Turkey. Our specialists handle the apostille (authentication and legalization) process for thousands of our clients every year. If you need to apostille your documents for use in Turkey – we can help!

About the Canadian Apostille Process
Every country that has signed the Hague Apostille Convention can issue an international apostille. An apostille certifies the authenticity of a document from one country so that it will be officially recognized in another country. Because Canada has not signed the Hague Apostille Convention, we cannot issue apostilles. Instead, Canada uses an equivalent three-step process called document authentication and legalization. Click on the icons below for information on each of these three steps.

As Turkey is an apostille country, you may be requested to “apostille” your Canadian documents before they will be officially recognized within the country. The term “apostille” refers to the Hague Apostille Convention. Any country that has signed this convention can issue apostilles. Since Canada did not sign The Hague Apostille Convention, we use an equivalent process called document authentication and legalization. This 3 step process is done in Canada and involves Global Affairs Canada and the Embassy of Turkey.

The pricing for the apostille of your documents at the Embassy of Turkey will vary depending on the number of documents you have and how quickly you need them processed. Note that you cannot obtain an actual apostille in Canada (take a look at our page about The Hague Apostille Convention for the reasons why). The Canadian equivalent to the apostille process is called document authentication and legalization.
When calculating the costs of the Canadian equivalent to the apostille process, you should factor in the costs charged by the Embassy of Turkey for each document being legalized, the costs of shipping your documents, and any costs associated with preparing your documents for processing (notarial services, translations, etc.).
Our experts can manage the entire process for you. If you use our services you should also factor in our service fees.

Document apostille certificates are issued by countries that are signatories to the Hague Apostille Convention. Because Canada has not signed the Hague Apostille Convention, we use a different but equivalent process called document authentication and legalization. The primary difference between these two processes is that an apostille certificate will be recognized by any country that has signed the Hague Apostille Convention, whereas a document that has been authenticated and legalized will only be recognized by one specific country – the country that has legalized the document.
