Documents and authentications

If you are required to submit official public documents of another state to an Austrian authority and/or wish to use an Austrian official document abroad you need to know in advance which conditions have to be met for these documents to be officially recognised.  

This section provides information on the requirements for document authentications in Austria and abroad and on the issue of an apostille, provided the document is not exempt from authentication requirements. This section also contains information on the provision of official documents from abroad.
