Translation and legalization of documents

Australia has signed the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 on the “Abolition of the Legalisation of Foreign Public Documents”. Therefore, the legalisation of public deeds or certificates issued in Australia that must be enforced in Italy is replaced by the affixing of the “Apostille”, which is a stamp/seal certifying the authenticity of documents that are issued by DFAT.

The document and its apostille must then be presented in the Embassy only after having them translated by a NAATI translator.
