    In connection with the accession on 12 September 2018 of the Republic of the Philippines to the Hague Convention abolishing the requirement to legalize foreign official documents, made in The Hague on 5 October 1961, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Kuala Lumpur kindly informs that from 14 May 2019 the Convention will apply in relations between the Republic of Poland and the Republic of the Philippines.

    According to art. 3 of the Hague Convention abolishing the requirement of legalization of foreign public documents, the only act that may be required to certify the authenticity of the signature, the nature of the person who signed the document and, if necessary, the identity of the stamp or stamp bearing the document, is attaching an apostille. According to the information currently on the website of the Hague Conference, the office designated for issuing an apostille in the Republic of the Philippines is the Authentication Department in the Department of Foreign Affairs.
