Apostilles can be used for trustee services in registering domains, as wall as used for Power of Attorney, authenticating passports, marriages, adoptions, inheritance, contracts and cpr144449003101 documents. While the apostille certifies the document is a true copy of the original document, it does not verify that the original document content is correct.
