Ukraine is a signatory country of the Hague Convention (1961), which treaty it entered on July 05, 2004. Also known as the “Apostille” Convention, this international treaty established a list of specific requirements regarding document legalization. Thus, in order to be recognized and accepted in Ukraine, the procedure of preparation of documents originated in the USA or notarized by an American Notary should be finalized by obtaining an Apostille Certificate (Apostille Stamp). Apostille simplified document legalization procedure since apostilled documents are exempt from further legalization by the consular establishments of Ukraine.
The Apostille is an officially issued certificate by the state or federal authority. It bears a unique number and specific date. Depending on type of document you need to apostille and what USA state a document has been issued in, the Apostille procedure varies.
Also, most of people, misunderstanding the purpose of Apostille, mistakably go to Ukrainian Consulate for American documents or to a consulate of a foreign country in Ukraine to get the Apostille done. Foreign embassies or consulate do not issue an Apostille on such documents as Vital Records, FBI Background Check Certificate, Police Clearance Certificate, etc. They should be legalized by competent authorities in the county, state and country of issue.
Thus, the customers, for whom the Apostille process is unknown, are advised to use a professional help of experienced Apostille Agents and Notaries who can direct them through the entire process. By employing experts for preparing a document and Apostille for Ukraine, you can save time and money, and be ensured that your documents will be prepared properly and promptly.
