One of the most frequest question is what does mean Apostille or Legalization in your certificate of marriage. The difference is very important to be learn as it can make a big issue to register the marriage later in your country or in your embassy or in a third part country where you are expat and temporary or permanent residents.
Sometimes people does not get attention at all to this matter and frequently they arrived in Tbilisi without to get the proper informations.
The wedding in Tbilisi could be very smooth and fast but it will be not so easy, smooth and fast to register the wedding if you get wrong in this matter.
All countries related l’Hague convention are belong Apostille that practically by-pass your embassy and make quite fast to approch for the registration of your wedding hold abroad. if your country is not belong l’hague convention, you must require a certificate of marriage with legalization. The first legalization seals are from the country issuing the certificate. So the certificate of marriage will have the Legalization seals by Georgian law. On contrary the Apostille, the certificate with Legalization is not enough for a lot of countries and many Nations requires their seals stamped as well in that document. It means after the release of the official certificate of marriage in Georgia with the Legalization seals, you will need to get the stamp of the related embassy as well.
There are some exception like Canada and few other country and we try constantly to be updated but our advice is to check directly with your embassy or municipality what to get to register your marriage abroad.
