Such a document can be provided with an Apostille directly with the Swedish Companies Registration Office’s stamp and signature as a basis.
Digital Certificate of Registration without stamp and signature from the Swedish Companies Registration Office
Certificates that are downloaded digitally and thus do not have a signature or stamp from the Tax Agency can still receive an Apostille stamp. However, they must be notarized before they can get an Apostille. A notarization means that a Notary Public certifies the document with its stamp, and when this stamp is in place, another Notary Public can then provide the document with an Apostille.
