Apostille for Pakistan
On 8 July 2022, Pakistan became a member of the Apostille Convention to be effective from 9 March 2023.
From 9 March 2023, documents from Australia to be used in Pakistan must be stamped with an apostille and the previous process of authentication is no longer required.
In Australia, the issuing authority for the apostille is the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). DFAT will issue the apostille on public documents, being original Australian government documents, or documents notarised by an Australian notary public.
As a leading provider of notary public services in Sydney, we help many clients from across New South Wales (and from other countries) to have their documents stamped with an apostille from DFAT.
