Irish Apostille Stamp or authentication stamp

An apostille stamp is a form of confirmation issued to documents of Irish origin by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFA) office in Dublin and Cork. It is a special stamp that is attached to the document to certify its authenticity. The apostille stamp is used by countries that are members of the Hague Convention, which was established in 1961 to simplify the process of international document authentication. The apostille confirms that a document has been issued and signed by an official authority in Ireland, such as a registrar or notary public, and is valid for use in other countries around the world. If you are looking to use your public, personal or educational document abroad it is likely you will need to get your document authenticated. Traditionally, documents will be requested by foreign governments and organisations.
