Apostilles are official certificates attached to foreign public documents to verify that the document is authentic, or has been signed by an official notary public.
The Supreme Court is the designated office for the creation of apostilles in terms of the Hague Convention. Apostilles can be done at the Supreme Court for SCR250.00 (two hundred and fifty).
Documents should be delivered to the Registrar or the Deputy Registrar by 10H30 AM, and will be ready for collection by 14Hoo on the same day.
If you submit your document/s after 10H30 AM, your document/s will be ready for collection from 09H00 AM the following day.
AUTHENTICATION OF DOCUMENTS
The Supreme Court can also certify documents and swear affidavits. This is done by the Deputy and Assistant Registrar:
- Certifying documents – SCR 250.00 (two hundred and fifty).
- Swearing affidavits: SCR100.00 (one hundred) + SCR 50.00 (fifty) per exhibit.
