What is the Hague Apostille?

The Hague Apostille is a certificate with international recognition based on the Convention of 1961:
The apostille is an international certification (comparable to a notarisation in domestic law)  between two countries, and is sufficient to certify a document’s validity.
The apostille itself is a stamp or printed form consisting of 10 numbered standard fields. more information in Wikipedia

in simple words:
You can imagine it there as a “super stamp” that only public servants, i.e. judges, are allowed to use. This simplifies the process abroad because all member states recognize the authenticity of documents with the Hague Apostille.
