26/06/2019: Philippine Embassies and Consulates will no Longer Accredit Notary Public

Philippine Embassies and Consulates will no Longer Accredit Notary Public

With the entry into force of the Apostille Convention for the Philippines on 14 May 2019, Philippine Embassies and Consulates will no longer legalize (authenticate) public documents issued by countries which are also Contracting Parties to the said Convention.

Since documents notarized by U.S. notaries are subject to Apostillization and the Philippine Embassy and the Consulates in the US no longer authenticate public documents, Post will no longer accredit notaries public.
