On 18 January 2021, Singapore acceded to the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCH) Convention of 5 October 1961 (“Apostille Convention”), abolishing the requirement of legalisation for foreign public documents. To operationalise the Apostille Convention, the Singapore Academy of Law is authorised to issue Apostilles for all Singapore documents bound overseas with effect from 16 September 2021. [Note: Singapore deposited its instrument in the Hague on 18 January 2021. Presently, 88 countries and the European Union are parties to the Convention who will accept Apostilles issued by appointed authorities in member countries/organisations.]

As the Republic of Korea is also a party to the Apostille Convention, the ROK Apostille Issuing Authority is authorised to issue Apostilles. With effect from 16 September 2021, documents with an apostille affixed can be presented in Singapore directly without further legalisation from the Singapore Embassy in Seoul.
