The Hague Apostille Convention, 1961, abolishes the requirement of legalization of foreign documents for use in any member country, once an Apostille certificate (including e-Apostille) has been issued by a competent authority of the country where the document originates. Therefore, no further attestation or legalization by an Indian Mission/Post of an apostilled document is required for use in India as India is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention.

Therefore, Irish documents like Educational certificates, Degrees, Irish passport, Salary slips etc will have to be apostilled by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Government of Ireland. Since both Ireland and India are members of the Hague Apostille Convention 1961, any Irish document duly apostilled by DFA does not require any further legalisation/attestation by the Indian Embassy for use in India.
