European translation agency (translation company) Accordo Ukraine, based in Kiev (Kyiv) is a professional agent in all matters connected with Ukrainian apostille and legalization stamp formalization. Irrespective of the place of issue of some official document in Ukraine apostille or legalization is formalized in Kiev only (for example, your document is issued in Kharkov, Donetsk, Lugansk, Mariupol, Dnepropetrovsk, Krivoy-Rog, Zaporozhie, Simferopol, Sevastopol, Nikolaev, Odessa, Lviv, but it’s apostilled or legalized with Ministry of Justice of Ukraine, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine or Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine).

Apostille or legalization proceeding is required for Ukrainian documents to be used afterwards in other countries of the world. At the same time there’re some agreements between Ukraine and the ex-USSR states simplifying recognition of official documents without obligatory apostille or legalization stamping (e.g. CIS countries like Russia, Bielorussia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkmenistan, Moldova and Turkey and Poland).

Apostille formalities are foreseen for the Hague Convention signatories and legalization procedure is necessary for other states not being parties to the above said Convention.

Ukrainian apostille formalization is provided by the three ministries: Ministry of Justice of Ukraine, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. Apostille on Ukrainian official documents is proceeded for such countries as Germany, Spain, Great Britain, the USA, Israel, Italy, France, etc. In each case some document is proceeded in some exact ministry. For example, Ukrainian apostille on educational documents (bachelor diploma, specialist diploma, master diploma, school certificate, bachelor diploma supplement, specialist diploma supplement, master diploma supplement, school certificate supplement) are stamped at Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, documents issued by Ukrainian civil registry offices or notaries are stamped with apostille at Ministry of Justice of Ukraine and other documents like police clearance certificates (criminal records) of medical certificates are proceeded by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine. For other countries, unless signed the Hague Convention, legalization stamp formalities are stipulated in Ukraine. Namely, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine is responsible for legalization stamp on Ukrainian documents. Legalization procedures in Ukraine are mostle requested for Canada, China, Brazil, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Urugay etc.
