How is the legalization of documents carried out?
In Ukraine, the legalization of documents is carried out in situations where they are planned to be used in the countries, which are not members of The Hague Convention of 1961. The countries participating in this Convention require apostille instead of legalization. States requiring legalization of documents: Canada, Brazil, Jordan, China (except Hong Kong and Macau), Lebanon, Kuwait, Libya, Syria, UAE and others. Legalization is valid and legal only in the state for which it was carried out.
In the process of legalization, special seals and stamps are put on the document, which certify the authenticity of the official and his signature, as well as the seal of the state body that issued the document. Depending on the purpose and type of document, legalization is carried out in such state bodies of Ukraine as the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Health.
