Apostille Packing List for Use in Saudi Arabia

A packing list is a document that lists the contents of a shipment. It is used to track the shipment of goods, to ensure that all of the goods are accounted for, and to calculate customs duties.

In order for a packing list to be used in Saudi Arabia, it must be apostilled. An apostille stamp is a certificate that authenticates the signature and seal of the official who issued the document.

How to Apostille a Packing List for Use in Saudi Arabia?

To apostille a packing list for use in Saudi Arabia, you must follow these steps:

  1. The packing list must be in the official language of Saudi Arabia, which is Arabic. If the packing list is not in Arabic, it must be translated into Arabic by a certified translator.
  2. The packing list must be signed and dated by the person who is responsible for shipping the goods.
  3. The packing list must be notarized by a public notary in the state where it was issued.
  4. The notarized packing list must be certified by the Secretary of State of the state where it was issued.
  5. The certified packing list must be apostilled by the U.S. Department of State.

The U.S. Department of State can apostille packing lists at its offices in Washington, D.C., and New York City. You can also contact a U.S. embassy or consulate in Saudi Arabia to apostille your packing list.

The Apostille Convention

The Apostille Convention is an international treaty that allows for the simplified authentication of public documents. The Convention was adopted in 1961 and is currently in force in over 100 countries, including Saudi Arabia.

The Apostille Convention eliminates the need for lengthy and expensive diplomatic procedures to authenticate documents. Instead, an apostille is a simple certificate that is affixed to the document by the competent authority in the country where the document was issued.
