Here I'm specifically referring to documents from Croatia (my mother, born in Croatia / Australian citizen, died in Croatia). It is possible to take out two types of documents in Croatia as proof of death: (a) " Death certificate" which is written in Croatian (b) International version of an "extract from the deceased" (all entries on the document are numbered and on the back of the document translated in several languages including English). On the back of the document, the following is also written: "extract issued in pursuance of the convention signed at Vienna on September 8 1976" (I understand that the document is accepted in Europe). Is the document (b) accepted in a Victorian court or is it necessary to take out (a) and translate it to English ? Is an apostille on the respective document needed (from the Croatian court)? Would appreciate if someone could answer / direct me to where I can ask to get a confirmation.
