Features of the legalization of documents in Kiev
oday, there are two most common types of legalization; they are consular legalization and apostille. Consular legalization of documents (Kiev) is required when the country, for which the document is prepared, is not a Member State of the Hague Convention. Conversely, for Member States of the Hague Convention the legalization procedure is simplified as much as possible - in order to give effect to the document, it is enough to affix the apostille stamp to it. If the apostille for a document can be obtained quickly, the legalization for consulates consists of several stages:
- Notarization of the document (copy or original copy);
- If it is a notarized copy or any other notary document, it should be certified at the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine;
- Legalization of a document at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine;
- Legalization of documents at the consulate of the country where they will be submitted.
