Apostille is a certificate confirming the origin of a public document (such as a birth, marriage, or death certificate, a judgment, an extract from a register, or a notarial certificate). Apostille can only be issued for documents issued in a country that is a party to the Apostille Convention. This will apply in another country that is also a party to the Convention.
Panama and the United States are parties to this Convention.
You can purchase the Panama Apostille Service to use your United States-issued documents in Panama for the following reasons:
– The United States in which the document was issued is a party to the Apostille Convention
– Panama, the country in which the document will be used, is a Party to the Apostille Convention
– The US law considers the document to be a public document
– Panama requires an apostille to recognize it as a foreign public document.
Apostille should never be used for the recognition of a document in the country in which the document was issued, apostilles are intended exclusively for the use of public documents abroad!
