Apostille is an international form for entering the data confirming legality of a document to be presented outside Ukraine. The “Apostille” stamp is affixed only to documents in a government-approved format.
Depending on the type, a document is apostilled by:
- the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine;
- the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine;
- the Ministry of Education of Ukraine.
Some countries (Austria, Belgium, Holland, Portugal, Switzerland) require a double apostille: on the original document and on a notary certified translation.
