    i. Verification of Public Documents
     
    There are two possibilities for verifying a public document:
     
    1. Verification by Means of Apostille
     
    In 1978, Israel signed and ratified the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents - 1961 (hereinafter: the Hague Convention). The purpose of this Convention was to shorten the processes required for a particular country to recognize the official documents issued by another country, by means of apostille certification.
     
    Public documents and certificates that were issued in one of the countries that are signatories to the above Convention, and which bear the apostille stamp, are valid for presentation in Israel, without the need for additional verification / certification by the diplomatic / consular representative at the Israeli mission.
     
    Additionally, for countries that are signatories to the Hague Convention, no additional verification is required by the mission consul of the country for which the document is designated, if it was stamped with an apostille in Israel.
     
    With regard to a list of the countries that signed the Convention, and details about the authority competent to grant apostille certification in each country, as well as additional information, click on the following link:
     
    - In order for an official Israeli document to be recognized in Thailand, it has to be
    authenticated at the relevant government office, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign affairs, and the Thai Embassy in Israel. The Thai Embassy in Israel authenticates the signature of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
     
    -  In order for an official Thai document to be recognized in Israel, it has to be authenticated in the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Israeli Embassy in Thailand.
     
     
    These are the documents needed at the Embassy for authentication:
     
    1. Signed document with the signature of the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
     
    2. A photo id passport.
     
    3. 400 Baht in cash for each document.
     
    The authentication document is given only in the Hebrew language!
     
    2. Verification by Means Other Than Apostille
     
    Verification of a document in a country that is not a signatory to the Hague Convention should be implemented as follows:
    After the document is verified by the competent authority in the foreign country (usually the Foreign Ministry or Ministry of Justice), the Israeli consular representative verifies the signature of the competent authority.
