Do apostilled documents expire?


Hey, quick question about apostilled documents. I’ve just ordered a batch for my new limited company. But I do not plan on getting any use out of them anytime soon - perhaps not for a year or so. Do apostilled documents expire at any point? Or will they always be valid?



No, there is no expiry date for apostille certificates but you may find that some countries will ask for a certificate that has been issued within the past 3, 6 or 12 months.

If you know which countries you will need to provide the certificates for, you should find out in advance what their requirements are to give yourself plenty of time to request new certificates if need be.
