New Electronical Apostille system from the Belgian Ministry of Foreign affairs

In May 2018 the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has changed the procedure of the legalization of the Free Sales Certificates. For the countries which are part of the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents, from now on FSC’s will be legalized with new Electronical Apostille from the Ministry.

This change will be visible on the certificates themselves since the reference of the apostille will be generated electronically for the FSC. The newest procedure update should have positive impact on the legalization timeframe of the certificate by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
