Certification and Apostille

 An Apostille is a special mark that is placed on official non-business documents for member countries of the Hague Convention. It verifies the signatures and capacity in which the person signing the document has acted, and the authenticity of the stamp or seal validating the document.

An Apostille is generally placed in one of the two official languages of the Hague Convention – English or French – but the national language of the country where the Apostille was placed.

At you can order an Apostille for a diploma, non-business documents, translations, and other documents.

Consular certification is a more complex method of certifying documents that is valid for countries that are not parties to the Hague Convention.

In this case, a certifiable document must go through the following stages:

  1. verification by a notary (together with the translation and verification of the translator’s signature)

  2. verification of the notary’s signature by the Ministry of Justice

  3. verification of the Ministry of Justice’s seal and signature of the authorized official in the Consular Department of Ministry

  4. subsequent verification in the consulate of the country accepting the outgoing document.

In our company you can order certification for a diploma, non-business documents, translations and other documents.
