Why do you need an apostille?

Almost all documents required abroad must be translated and legalized. In 1961, the Hague Convention was adopted, abolishing the procedure of consular legalization, which greatly simplifies the granting of legal force to a document by placing an apostille on it.

In the same way, documents that were issued abroad and that are submitted in Ukraine for registration of certain documents must be translated into Ukrainian and legalized in accordance with the procedure established by law.

For example, if the child was born abroad, then the child’s birth certificate must have an apostille stamp for submitting documents for the issuance of a foreign passport, unless otherwise stipulated by international treaties.
