An apostille is an official certificate which legalizes official and copied documents in states (countries) which accept the apostille stamp. It is often the case that documents will require apostilles when moving into a particular state for employment purposes. Once a document has gained an apostille certificate these documents are then legal for use and are accepted in these states without needing any more legalization.
Examples of some Non-Member states who request additional legalization for the use of documents are the UAE, Qatar and Kuwait. If you need to submit documents to Dubai you would need a full UAE attestation service.
