The method of apostilization of a certificate in Ukraine or abroad depends on the type of a certificate to be apostilled.
Let's consider some of the methods of apostilization.
Method No. 1. Apostilization of a police clearance certificate.
This method is the most demanded since visa offices of foreign countries require from citizens, going abroad to work, to obtain a permanent residence permit or for another reason, an apostilled police clearance certificate.
Apostilization of a police clearance certificate in Ukraine:
Example This certificate is issued by the Information Technology Department under the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. This certificate is apostilled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
Apostilization of a police clearance certificate in Russia:
Example This certificate is issued by the information and analytical centers under the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. This certificate is apostilled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia.
Apostilization of a police clearance certificate in Poland:
Example This certificate is issued by the information bureau of the National Criminal Registry or by special information offices at the courts of Poland. This certificate is apostilled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland.
Method No. 2. Apostille for a certificate of driving license.
Example This certificate is issued by the regional service centers (RSC) under the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. An original of this certificate is apostilled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine. But since it takes too long to apostille an original, apostilization of a notarized copy of a certificate through the Ministry of Justice might be a way out.
An example of an apostilled notarized copy of a certificate by the Ministry of Justice:
Method No. 3. Apostille to a place of residence registration certificate.
Earlier, regional divisions of the Migration Service of Ukraine used to issue these certificates. But starting from 2016, these certificates are issued by the administrative services departments under municipal executive committees. The certificate is issued if a confirmation from the housing maintenance office and a passport are available. An original of this certificate is apostilled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
Method No. 4. Apostilization of an education certificate.
Example These certificates are issued by educational institutions of Ukraine. An original of this certificate is apostilled by the Ministry of Education of Ukraine. The validity period of an apostille coincides with the validity period of a certificate apostilled. Be aware that for a certificate to be eligible for apostilization, it should be sealed and signed by the head of an educational institution. If a certificate bears a seal of the office or signed by a deputy, acting head or another person, most probably the apostille will be denied. It is related to the fact that the state body putting down apostille only has a sample of the main seal and a signature specimen of the head. That is why to verify the document details, a certificate or other document to be apostilled should contain the appropriate seal and signature otherwise, it will be denied. There are way more methods of apostilization of certificates in Ukraine. For example, apostilization of a pension amount certificate or apostilization of a form No. 082 medical certificate, etc. If you need to get some advice, request a certificate, put down apostille, or send an original document to another city or country, do not hesitate to ask employees of our company!
