For many Ukrainians, the PRC is a country for work, study, life and business. If you are not traveling to China as a tourist, then most likely you will need to have the documents obtained in Ukraine legalized. You cannot do this while abroad.
Why and in when do you need legalization of documents for China?
To work officially, study or conduct business transparently, citizens of Ukraine have to contact government agencies to obtain the appropriate permits, licenses, and other papers. However, such interaction requires documents received in Ukraine, and they are issued in the Ukrainian language. Chinese officials, employers or universities cannot verify the authenticity of such a document.
That is why there is a legalization procedure. For example, if you are going to study in the Middle Kingdom, you have to provide a certificate of secondary education or a diploma of higher or secondary specialized education. To verify them, Ukrainians undergo a legalization procedure.
For the countries participating in the Hague Convention, there is a simplified procedure – apostilization. But China is not a member of The Hague Convention, so foreigners should undergo the legalization procedure.
It is necessary if you:
- are going to study or work in China;
- are going to marry a Chinese while in Ukraine;
- are doing business in the PRC, planning to open a representative office of your company;
- conduct legal proceedings with Chinese suppliers or citizens;
- are going to buy a property.
We have cited the most popular reasons as examples, but there are many more.
