Apostille certification and legalization service
List of services provided by AventA Translation Company for document legalization and affixing apostilles:
An apostille is a stamp 9 х 9 cm in size affixed on the reverse of the document.
An apostille-bearing document issued abroad is valid in our country and vice versa.
Please note that if you need to have your documents apostilled:
1. Ukraine does not require any apostilles on a passport / copy of a passport;
2. The documents issued by a Civil Registry Office (Certificate of Marriage, Birth Certificate, etc.) after 1993 may be apostilled via a notarized copy. In you have the document issued before 1993, it must be replaced with the new one;
3. The documents issued in any location other that Kiev or Kiev region are to be certified on the reverse by the regional public authorities, e.g. a Birth Certificate issued in Lviv region must bear the stamp of Lviv Region Civil Registry Office;
4. The documents to be used in Ukraine issued by the public authorities of the CIS countries do not require any apostillization.
Legalization has essentially the same function as apostilles.
