An apostilled document itself does not have a specific expiration date. Once a document has been apostilled, the apostille certification remains valid indefinitely as long as the document remains intact and the apostille seal or sticker is not tampered with. However, it’s important to note that the relevance or acceptance of the apostilled document can depend on the requirements of the authority or organization to which you are presenting it.

Some institutions or foreign governments may request that the document and its apostille be issued within a certain timeframe to ensure the information is up-to-date. Therefore, it’s always advisable to check the specific requirements of the receiving body to ensure your apostilled document meets their criteria for recency and validity.

Apostille certificates do not have an expiration date. The apostille certificate will have a date of issue, but it does not ‘run out’ or ‘expire’. In most circumstances, an apostille should be accepted at any time after the issue. However, there are some circumstances when a recent apostille may be requested on a document.
