Accession to the Hague Apostille
On November 9th, 2009, the Congress approved Peru’s accession to the Hague Apostille Convention. Although this country was already a member of the Hague Conference, it had not signed the Hague Apostille Convention until now.
However, it will not enter into force until Peru deposits the corresponding instrument of accession.
After this, another Peruvian law will formally declare Peru’s entry to the afore mentioned Convention.
It is important to remember that the Apostille is valid only among countries that have signed the Convention.
