Legalization of documents


Legalization of documents

A public deed or certificate issued by the Israeli authorities to be valid in Italy must bear the so-called "Apostille", be translated and be accompanied by the certificate of conformity to the original. The Apostille is a stamp/seal that certifies the authenticity of documents issued by a country that must be recognized in other countries.

To get an Israeli document valid in Italy, follow these simple steps:

STEP 1 - Affixing of the Apostille

Ask the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to affix the Apostille on your original document. For more information, procedures and appointments click here.

STEP 2 - Translation of the document

Have the document on which the Apostille has been affixed translated into Italian by an Embassy translator

STEP 3 - Conformity translation certification

Ask for an appointment at the consulate through our online platform in order to obtain the certificate of translation conforming to the original. On the day of the appointment, bring with you the original document, the translation and the contact details for the payment of the consular fee.



Israeli students who have undertaken a course of study in Italy are exempt from paying the consular fee if they bring with them a copy of their university card or certification proving their enrollment.
