THE HAGUE CONVENTION (“APOSTILLE CONVENTION”) ENTERED IN FORCE ON AUGUST 30TH 2016
With the enactment of Law No. 20,711 on August 30th 2016, Chile adhered as one of the member countries of The Hague Convention. Consequently, Chilean documents will not require legalizations other than the Apostille in order to be used in other member states.
Adherence to the Convention has the advantage of speeding legal processes, since the requirement of legalizing public documents is deleted, and their circulation between member countries increases. This implementation will promote foreign trade.
