LEGALIZATION 

Legalization of documents and Apostille

Legalization of documents, executed and certified in Ukraine by public or local authorities and intended for use abroad, is performed in the Department of Consular Service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine or its representative office, as well as in the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine.

Apostille is a special form of document certification subject to the provisions of the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961. Ukraine is a party to the Convention. Apostille is applied only in the member countries of the Convention. If a country is not a signatory to the Convention, apostillization in such country is not possible. In this case, to certify documents for Ukraine one should apply to the consulate of that country (consular legalization).

Apostille is applied in the following cases:

• Foreign documents are notarized wherever they are executed, then an Apostille stamp is put, and finally the translation of the documents is notarially attested at the place of use.

• If Ukrainian documents need to be presented abroad, they are apostilled by the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Foreign Affairs or Ministry of Education.

Apostille certifies:

• Authenticity of signature;
• Capacity of the signatory of the document;
• Genuineness of the seal or stamp affixed to the document.

To be apostilled, the document must meet certain requirements, as Apostille is not stamped on all documents.

The following documents are to be apostilled:

• Education documents (diplomas, academic degree certificates, certificates of general education, statements from educational institutions, curriculums, etc.);
• Certificates and documents of civil status (certificates of birth, marriage, divorce, death and other documents issued by a Civil Registry Office);
• Letters of attorney;
• Judicial decisions and materials on civil, domestic and criminal proceedings, documents from prosecution authorities;
• Articles of associations;
• Constituent documents;
• Patents;
• Registration certificates;
• Licenses;
• Documents executed by public and private notaries.

The following documents are not to be apostilled:

• Documents drawn up by diplomatic and consular institutions;
• Administrative documents directly relating to commercial or customs transactions, such as contracts and agreements for supplies, services, performance of various works and settlements on them;
• Originals, copies and photocopies of passport documents;
• Military cards;
• Work record cards;
• Gun licenses;
• Vehicle registration documents;
• Identity cards and substituting documents;
