A Death Certificate is generally requested when the family requests to settle the estate of the deceased in another country. If the requesting country is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, you will be required to provide a Death Certificate with an Apostille. The Apostille helps authenticate the document for acceptance in the other country.
