IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Guatemala has joined the Hague Convention on the apostilling of documents, a step that will shorten the process of authenticating documents for immigration-related applicants.
What does the change mean? The apostilling process replaces the lengthier legalization process and in most cases can be completed in one day.
BAL Analysis: Nationals who need to submit foreign-issued documents to Guatemalan authorities should benefit significantly from the adoption of apostille procedures. The move should significantly shorten the process of authenticating supporting documents, such as educational degrees and marriage and birth certificates.
