Apostille Services

Casa Canada is Costa Rica’s finest full service provider offering Apostille and International Document Certification services.

Since 2012 documents from countries participating in the Hague Convention on Apostille can be apostilled (verified, or authenticated) for use in Costa Rica. Canada is not a signatory to the convention, however the US is, so documents from the US not longer have to be sent to the Costa Rican Consulate or the Foreign Relations ministry in Costa Rica for authentication.

Apostille and International Document Certification can be complicated. This process should be done by professionals who fully understand the Apostille and International Document Certification process and the requirements of different countries. Otherwise your paperwork could be rejected, costing time and money.  Casa Canada’s Apostille and International Document Certifications services are guaranteed.
