Can a Notary Public issue an Apostille?

Yes. Important to know is that the only person who can do this is a Notary Public with the appointment they received from the County Board. But how does it actually work? In summary, an Apostille is a kind of certification for documentation that, usually, must be presented to foreign actors. For example, for a bank, estate agent, foreign authority, etc. The Apostille stamp certifies that the document has been officially certified by an elected person from the Swedish state. This means that confidence that the document is de facto genuine is strengthened. In other words, this means that the document does not need to be certified by, for example, a Swedish embassy or consulate, but a Notary Public’s certification is sufficient.
