Bosnia & Herzegovina is a signatory to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents Hague Apostille ConventionExternal link (opens in new tab). This means that official documents issued in other signatory countries can be certified by an Apostille Stamp in the country where they have been issued. This stamp will generally be accepted directly by Bosnian authorities as confirmation of the document’s authenticity without need for further certification in Bosnia & Herzegovina.

However, documents from non-Apostille countries must be legalized by the authorities of the issuing country and then attested by the local Bosnian embassy or consulate. This applies to documents in countries such as: AE United Arab EmiratesUnited Arab Emirates - TW TaiwanTaiwan - MY MalaysiaMalaysia - TH ThailandThailand - ZM ZambiaZambia - QA QatarQatar
