Latvia launches a Category 2 e-Register
On 26 March 2018, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia launched a Category 2 e-Register as part of the electronic Apostille Program (e-APP) under the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents (Apostille Convention). The e-Register is available at http://www.mfa.gov.lv/en/consular-information/apostille-checking.
The Permanent Bureau would like to congratulate the Government of Latvia on this initiative. To date, there are over 200 Competent Authorities in 33 Contracting Parties operating one or both components of the e-APP, demonstrating the ever-increasing support for the program.
For more information, see the Categories of e-Registers, the List of Operational e-Registers, and the Implementation Chart of the e-APP.
