Apostilles are issued in terms of the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirements of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. Namibia acceded to this Convention on January 30, 2001. As a result of Namibia being a State party to this Convention, the Executive Director of the Ministry of Justice and the Registrar of the High Court have been designated to issue Apostilles on behalf of the Republic of Namibia. Most countries in the Schengen area require all original documents to be “Apostilled” (authenticated) by the Ministry of Justice
