    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: http://www.hcch.net/index_en.php?act=conventions.authorities&cid=17


     

    Apostille certification process in the Republic of Serbia

    Ministry of Foreign Affairs

    Directorate for Consular Affairs

    (…)

     

     

    The Appostille is being given by the state organs that issued a document.

    The Appostille is the only formality that, on the basis of the Convention regulations, may be requested in order for the public documents made on the territory of one state party to the Convention, to be used on the territory of all states parties to the Convention, with the legal effect of the public documents issued by these states.

    The Appostille is being issued on the request of the document holder.

    States parties to the Convention freely designate the relevant authority, competent to issue the Appostille. The Convention stipulates which public documents are subject to Appostille and which are not.

    The Appostille is being applied to the documents issued by organs or officials of the state judiciary, public prosecution, court registries and court receivers, the administrative documents, documents issued by or certified by the public notary, official statements on entries into public registries, and the official certifications of signatures on private documents.

     It is not being applied to the documents issued by diplomatic-consular representatives and the documents immediately referring to a trade or customs transaction.

     The Appostille should be made in accordance with the designated form, put on the document itself or its annex; it may be written in the official language of the issuing authority, but the title “Appostille Convention de la Haye du 5 octobre 1961” has to be in French, in order for the organs of the states parties to the Convention to be able to recognize and accept it.

    In Serbia, the competent authority for issuing the Appostille is the First Degree Court, for public documents drafted, issued or certified by the organs with the seat in this Court’s area.

     

    The Appostille is being signed by the Municipal Court President or judge authorized by him/her, and is being accompanied by this Court’s stamp.

    2.         Verification by means other than a postille

    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.
