The Apostille Convention becomes effective in Peru

As of today September 30, 2010 the "Convention Abolishing the Requirement of legalization for Foreing Public Documents " of October 5th,1961 (also known as the Apostille Convention) becomes effective in Peru and, therefore, the legalization of documents coming from member States of the Convention to be filed in Peru as well as of documents sent from Peru to other member States of the Convention is not anymore necessary. The 97 member States of the Convention have time until today, September 30th, 2010, to oppose Peru's accession. As of September 28th, 2010 only Germany and Greece have objected and, therefore, pusuant to art. 12 third paragraph of the Convention, this is not in force between Peru and Germany and Greece rispectively.
