If you are going to study, work in a foreign company or get a permanent residence abroad, you need to submit a diploma, certificate or other educational document. To legalize a document abroad it is necessary to have it apostilled in Ukraine.
How to make an apostillation of educational documents issued in Ukraine before 1997?
The apostille stamp on a diploma or a certificate of education is placed by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. The procedure is performed when an original is submitted. The law provides registration period of 1 to 30 working days. This term may be increased if you have a diploma issued before 1997, since information about such documents is not available in the electronic database. In this case, the request is sent to an institution you graduated from. The waiting period may be 20-30 days.
Educational documents, requiring apostillation:
- a diploma;
- conferral certificates;
- a certificate of education;
- certificates from educational institutions, etc.
An apostille for a diploma or a certificate of education confirms an authenticity of a document, signatures and seals. The apostille stamp allows you to use documents abroad without the need of their legalization. Executed documents with the seal of the Ministry are submitted to public bodies, institutions and recruiting companies.
It is important to know!
The apostille stamp is valid only in countries that have signed the Hague Convention.
