Benin

Is Benin a member of the Hague Apostille Convention?

Yes, Benin is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention. The Convention abolishes the requirement of legalization for foreign public documents among the member countries. Instead, an apostille certificate is issued by the competent authority in the country where the document was issued, which certifies the authenticity of the signature, the capacity in which the person signing the document acted, and the identity of any stamp or seal affixed to the document. This makes it easier for documents to be recognized and accepted in other member countries without the need for further authentication.

What Government Office in Benin is responsible for issuing Apostille?

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Benin is responsible for issuing Apostille.

What is the procedure to obtain Apostille in Benin?

Here are the general steps to obtain an Apostille in Benin:

1. Obtain the original document that needs to be apostilled, such as a birth certificate, marriage certificate, or diploma.

2. Have the document translated into French if it is not already in French. The translation must be done by a certified translator.

3. Take the original document and the French translation to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Cotonou, Benin.

4. Pay the required fee and submit the documents to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for authentication.

5. Wait for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to issue the Apostille.

6. Once the Apostille is issued, the document is considered legally recognized in any country that is a member of the Hague Convention.

It is recommended to contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Benin for the most up-to-date and accurate information on the Apostille process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Apostille Explained

An apostille is a certificate attached to an official document (for example, a birth or marriage certificate) that certifies:

  • the authenticity of the signature of the public official who signed the document,
  • the capacity in which that public official acted, and
  • the authenticity of the seal (or stamp) affixed to the document

The Apostille does not validate the contents of the document.

In order that a document issued in one country can be recognized in another country, that document must be legalized or authenticated. For countries that are members of The 1961 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents, this legalization process has been simplified. Under The Apostille Hague Convention, signatory countries have agreed to recognize each other's official documents if they have an Apostille.

For non-signatories, the legalization of documents is more complicated and requires that the document be authenticated by a consular official.

The word “Apostille” comes from the French verb “apostiller”, which derives from the old French word "postille" meaning “annotation,” and before it the Latin word "postilla".

We can apostille any document issued in any country.
