How to prepare a police clearance certificate for foreign countries

If a police clearance certificate in Ukraine is required for foreign countries, we can also notarize the translation and carry out its legalization or apostille.

The complexity of the preparation of a police clearance certificate for foreign countries is that each country has its own requirements for the certification of this document. For example, for the countries of the Hague Convention, a police clearance certificate should be apostilled in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, translated into the language of the country, after that this translation is notarized and apostilled in the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine. For these countries, any police clearance certificate is legalized by consular legalization, after which it is stamped in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. After these procedures this certificate is certified by the Consulate of the country to which this certificate was provided.

If you appeal to a professional agency, you will be relieved from the necessity to deal with all such nuances, what you would have done if you were processing a police clearance certificate by yourself.
