What does the consular legalization in Ukraine mean?
 
It is the process of making the documents out. It is aimed at bringing document into force for further usage abroad. It is an error to think that one should legalize the documents upon arriving abroad. In fact, the documents are subject to legalization only in the country of issue, that is Ukrainian documents are subject to legalization only in Ukraine, Russian documents are subject of legalization only in Russia, Belarusian documents are subject of legalization only in Belarus and so on.
 
Consular legalization of the documents in Ukraine is required if the country, for which the documents are being made out, is not in the following lists:
 
1. The list of the countries, which have signed the Hague Convention.
2. The list of the countries, which have signed with Ukraine a bilateral agreement about legal assistance in civil cases.
Detailed lists with the names of these countries is given in table No. 1 and table No. 2 at the ‘Apostille in Ukraine’ page of this site.
 
If the country is a member of the Hague Convention, the documents may be prepared by the simplified method of legalization, that is apostilization, translation into a chosen foreign language, and notarization.
 
If the country has signed with Ukraine a bilateral agreement about legal assistance in civil cases, legalization is not required. It is enough to translate the documents into a chosen foreign language and notarize them.
 
If the country, for which the documents are being made out, is not included in the above-mentioned lists it is necessary to legalize the documents in Ukraine.
 
This principle of the documents preparation acts within the international legal framework, though exceptions from the rules have happened in our practice. That is why before execution of the documents, please, consult the organization, where you are planning to present the documents, and reconfirm the method of their execution.
 
The method of consular legalization of the particular document in Ukraine depends on the type of document and targeted country. Below you may find a couple of examples of legalization. The examples contain the names of the establishments in the necessary sequence, where the documents should be checked. These establishments verify the genuineness of the documents with further notarization and translation into foreign language.

1. Ministry of Justice of Ukraine;
2. Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine;
3. Translation by a translator in the consular agency of the targeted country and notarization;

The procedure of legalization has some nuances and it is very difficult to figure it out on your own. That is why we offer you to use free of charge consultation by contacting our operators on phone or with the help of Internet application Skype.
 
Please note!
Consular legalization in Ukraine by third parties is made strictly subject to availability of notarized power of attorney. That is why, if the client wants to use our services, it is necessary to complete the power of attorney. If the client is abroad and has no possibility to visit the notary in Ukraine, it is necessary to contact consular agency of Ukraine at the territory of the country of residence. The consular agency of Ukraine will prepare the necessary power of attorney at once in Ukrainian.
 
If the client decided to use our services, but it is not impossible for him to visit our office, we offer to make the online order.
 
How to make the online order of consular legalization of documents in Ukraine?
 
1. The client contacts our operator and informs what documents and for what country it is necessary to legalize.
2. Our operator informs the client about the proper method of legalization and the price.
3. If the client decides to use the service of legalization, we prepare a notarized power of attorney for the employee of a Network of Translation Agencies ‘UKRAINE’. Our operator sends to the e-mail of the client or the notary a draft of the power of attorney with the details of the specialist responsible for the documents legalization. After preparation, the client sends the notarized power of attorney to the office of our company in a convenient way.
4. The amount of the advanced payment depends on the legalization method. Usually the amount of payment makes 50% of the total price of the order. The client pays the necessary price and we start to work.
5. Our specialists complete the documents and send their scanned copies to the client for review.
6. After review the client pays the second part of the total price and our operator sends original documents to the stated address of the client. The second part of the total price may also be paid by cash upon the documents delivery.
