    Authentication of a document
    There are two possible ways to authenticate public documents:
    Document authentication by Apostille certificate:
    Israel signed and ratified in 1978 the Hague Convention regarding the cancellation of the verification requirement for public foreign documents – 1961 (“Hague Convention”) in order to shorten the procedures required about recognizing foreign official documents using the Hague Apostille. Please not that public documents and cards issued in a country that is a member of this Convention and has the Hague Apostille, will be valid in Israel and doesn’t have to be authenticated by a diplomatic representative in an Israeli mission. Furthermore, for countries members of the Hague Convention, there will not be necessary to be authenticated if it has the Hague Apostille sealed in Israel.
    For a list of countries that signed the Hague Convention and information about competent authority for granting Hague Apostille in each country, see this link:
     
    Authentication not by using the Hague Apostille:
    For a country which is not member of the Hague Convention:
    After the document is authenticated by the competent authority at the foreign country (usually at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or Ministry of Justice), the Israeli Representative has to identify their signature.
