Certification of Israeli public documents is done according to international conventions and agreements (primarily the Hague Convention) by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem and is divided into two categories:
A. Documents intended for countries that are signatories of the Hague Convention - will be certified with an Apostille seal.
For countries that are signatories to the Hague Convention, no additional certification is required by the consul of the diplomatic mission of the country for which the document is intended.
B. Documents intended for countries that are not signatories to the Hague Convention - will be certified with a seal that is not Apostille. After the certification by the Foreign Ministry additional certification will be required by the diplomatic mission of the country for which the document is intended. Without the seal of the relevant diplomatic mission of that country in Israel, the document will not be accepted by the authorities of that respective country.
When it comes to obtaining Apostille certification on notarized documents, the documents will be certified as described above, but by one of the chambers of the courts throughout the country and not by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
