Notarized vs. Apostilled
Certain documents needed in the process of incorporating your business in Hong Kong must be notarized or apostilled.
The notary public is a commissioned representative of a government and is charged with verifying the identity of the person who signs the document to prevent fraud. A notary public’s seal on the document ensures that everyone can trust the documents and the signature.
An apostille is a form of authorization issued to documents to use countries participating in the Hague Convention of 1961.
The Apostille Service Office, High Court Registry at room LG 115 provides apostille and authentication services.
