Legalization, search and translation of Documents and Certificates
Mexico and the US are both members of the Hague Apostille Convention and any official document destined for inter country use requires an Apostille. Mexico joined the Hague Apostille Convention on August 14, 1995. (Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents).
