The tiny island of Taiwan is a technological hub in Asia. Despite boasting of rich culture and spiritual heritage, Taiwan takes center stage for its exports and trade.
But if you are traveling to Taiwan, you will not find any apostille for Taiwan services offered since the country is not a signatory for the Hague Apostille Convention.
Documents cannot be apostilled for Taiwan from an agency. Any official documents tagged for Taiwan will need a certificate from the secretary of state.
However, legalizing documents for Taiwan will require additional steps before the papers can be presented to the respective Taiwan embassy or the Consulate office.
Most countries who are not members of the Hague Apostille Convention will request certified State documents to be approved by the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., before being presented to the Embassy or Consulate for legalization.
While submitting the documents to the Embassy or Consulate, you could be asked for further verifications and additional copies to prove your case. The Taiwan Consulate is located in Wisconsin Avenue, N.W., Washington D. C.
