Frequently asked question
A notary is a qualified lawyer under the Notary Law who checks, certifies, testifies and prepares legal documents in accordance with the law. The signature of the notary is perceived by the court as confirmation of the authenticity of the document, the identity of the signatory and other certificates.
Notarial documents can be used as evidence in court or in other government agencies both in Israel and abroad. The role of a notary and the salary of a notary are regulated by the Notary Law. The powers and services of a notary are in accordance with the laws of the State of Israel. The notary has a big influence, because in fact he is a “stamp” that indicates the authenticity of documents, and he can certify them. A notary can be used as a reliable person to prove or verify something. There are many notaries in Israel, but finding a quality and professional notary is not easy. Notary Tomer Tsaitel has been providing notary services to his client with great success for a long time.

At the request of the client, the notary has the right to carry out any notarial actions outside his office. This is usually necessary in the case when the client himself is not able to come to the notary office for health reasons. In such a situation, not only the notarial procedure itself is paid, but also the time spent by the notary outside his office. Payment is made – like any payment for notarial actions – at a uniform rate approved by the Ministry of Justice.
An Israeli notary has the right to act not only on the territory of Israel, but also abroad (if this does not contradict local legislation). A notary has the right to do any notarial acts permitted by Israeli law, except for a sworn declaration.
Our notary office provides notary services abroad. The cost of such services is, of course, high, but the advantage that it often carries (saving time and obtaining the services of an Israeli notary right at the client’s place of residence) is huge.
Apostille is the process of legalizing a document for its subsequent submission to a representative office of another country. Such legislative norms were introduced by the decision of the Hague Convention, which passed back in 1961. States that have signed this convention are obliged to accept documents from other countries, legalized by the apostille seal, as if they were issued in the country in which they are presented.
In some cases, a double apostille may be required to confirm the legitimacy of a certificate or certificate. One, which is placed first on the original document, and the second, which is placed after the notarized translation of the document.
So what is the apostille for? Without it, the document will simply not have legal force in another country.
