The apostille (international certification of documents, the process of apostilization) is attached to official deeds and documents. It proves the authentication of the signature and imprint of the stamp on documents for the purpose of its use abroad. These are most often administrative, wedding, business and court documents, notarial acts and powers of attorney subject to the so-called apostille clause.

In most cases, apostille is issued in the official language of the country in which the documents were issued, sometimes bilingual (the second language is mostly English).
Therefore, a court-certified translation is often necessary for submission in the country of destination.
Apostille is also attached to foreign birth certificates, marriage and divorce documents, issued to Czechs born or living abroad. On the basis of a certified translation of a foreign document, registration is then applied for through the embassies of the Czech Republic or the Registry Department, which is currently maintained by the Brno-City District Office.
