What is an apostille and what is it for?
An apostille affixed on a certificate of birth and of marriage and its termination confirms an authenticity of documents abroad. The stamp shows that a document is not forged, all the data is correct, seals and signatures correspond to standards operating in Ukraine. An apostille allows you to validate your documents in other countries.

The apostille stamp is valid only in countries that have signed the Hague Convention. Other countries’ citizens need a document to be legalized in a consulate.
An apostille is a stamp or a separate sealed paper that is filed to a document. It is drawn up in the Ministry of Justice for documents of the Civil Registry Office.
