Marriage Certificate apostille, attestation is mandatory when you are going abroad for a job, study or migration. The marriage certificate will be legalized from the embassy of the destination country in India after the attestation of MEA.
The Apostille, attestation, or embassy legalization of the marriage certificate can be done on the original certificate only and there is still no provision for attestation on Xerox copy or photocopy or marriage certificate.
The process and time frame of marriage certificate attestation varies as per destination country. Suppose if you want to travel to a country that falls under The Hague convention, the Apostille of Marriage Certificate should be done from MEA.
Marriage certificate apostille is mandatory only if the Hague Convention Country (HCC) is the destination country. The marriage certificate shall be legalized from the embassy of the destination country in India if the destination is a non-Hague conventional nation., Government of India.
There are two steps of Marriage Certificate Apostille –
The requirement and timeframe of supporting credentials vary on the issuing state of certificate which should be apostilled.
The Regional Attestation Department, General Administrative Department, or Home Department of state issuing certificate in India is responsible for attestation of the marriage certificate.
All documents issued are associated with some states. The state government needs to verify the authenticity of the document for the apostille. State authentication can be performed by the district secretariat where the document is issued.
State verification is the first step for marriage certificate apostille. A lot of government authorities are involved and the whole process takes up to 30 business days.
Every day, thousands of documents are apostille in MEA. There has been a great rise in the number of documents received by MEA, since 2012. MEA really finds it hard to keep all documents in track. So, we can handle this job for you.
We are capable of collecting and distributing the documents. MEA can apostille the document but it doesn’t accept documents from citizens directly. In total of 113 Hague countries, both apostles are accepted legally.
But state verification is required for Austria and Italy. Nations that don’t fall under the list of Hague countries require documents to undergo state verification and MEA apostille.
If your destination country falls under the list of Hague countries, except Austria and Italy, you need to undergo SDM attestation as it is affordable and faster.
SDM costs vary if your documents are issued in Haryana, Punjab, and Goa. It takes additional verification of documents in these states. State Attestation is required if the country of your destination doesn’t fall under the list of Hague nations.
Then, the document goes for embassy attestation and then MEA marriage apostille. SDM verification is relatively a shorter process as state attestation takes plenty of time. Getting a marriage certificate apostille from MEA takes quite less time.
You need to submit the documents with SDM or Sub Divisional Magistrate. Then, the certificate is submitted to the Ministry of External Affairs. The package you choose determines the time needed for this type of apostille. It varies from 3 to 14 days.
Marriage certificate apostille is valid for 6 months and is provided by MEA. Validity varies country by country. Marriage certificate apostille is valid for 6 months in India.
A lot of people fall into the trap of unauthorized travel agencies or any person who claims to submit their documents and get all things done. They end up with illegal attestation, visa rejection, loss of valuable original certificates, and even deported from a foreign country.
This way, we are capable of submitting your documents and marriage certificate to the Ministry of Affairs, Ministry of External Affairs, and other departments. You can rest assured with complete authentication according to international law.
