Apostille of documents in Ukraine

Without knowledge of the latest changes in the legislation and the nuances of appeal to the state bodies, the authentication procedure may be delayed for a long time. Experts with experience in this field, after contacting the Bureau, check whether a state where it is planned to use the document is in the list of parties to the Hague Convention. The translation in the form of apostille with a stamp is a legally significant certificate, which is recognized in 140 countries of the world.

For States that have signed bilateral agreements with Ukraine on legal cooperation and assistance in civil matters, the apostilization procedure is not carried out - it is enough for citizens to present a notarized translation of a specific document. It is prepared by an accredited specialist.

Diplomas and other foreign certificates are also subject to apostilization in the form of nostrification on the territory of Ukraine to confirm or select the appropriate educational program to continue education.

Also, if necessary, we can prepare a translation of the document into a foreign language of the country where it is planned to be presented, and make a written application for the procedure. According to the results of the appeal to the Bureau, You will receive diploma, certificate or archival extract certified by the seal of the relevant department.

Where to affix apostille?

Stamps are put down on the original or notarized copy. Specialists of the Bureau to obtain an apostille on the document in Kiev study fact sheets and extracts in order to certify it with seals in the following ministries and their structural units:

  • diplomas, certificates of education, extracts from the archives that issued the documents of the educational institution in the Ministry of education;
  • notarial certificates, certificates of registry offices and court decisions in the Ministry of Justice;
  • legal documents of a commercial nature (statutes, Memorandum of Association, etc.), police non-conviction certificates, archival extracts from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The following are examples of the stamp of apostille of the various ministries and departments.

The time of apostille affixing in the regions and the cost of services depends on the type of document and the period of consideration of written certificates by state bodies.

Below are given the examples of apostille stamps of these ministries:

Apostille of MFA Ukraine

Apostille Ministry of Education of Ukraine

Apostille or legalization?

On the territory of countries that have not signed the Hague Convention, there are other international norms for the recognition of foreign documents. China, North Korea, UAE, Brazil, Malaysia and a number of other States accept for consideration only written certificates legalized in their consulates . In this case, apostilization of documents is replaced by a procedure consisting of three stages:

  • initial certification in state structures and departments of Ukraine;
  • subsequent notarial translation;
  • legalization in the consulate of the country of appeal.
