Apostille and Legalization
19 December 2019 13:47

Official documents for consular legalization or apostille can be submitted ONLY by means of postal service "Nova Poshta" at the applicant’s expense in both directions.

When submitting documents for legalization (apostille) it is also necessary to send:

for individuals

for entities

  • a letter of appeal about consular legalization (apostille),
  • an application (application-Apostille (.xls, 49.15 Kb) or application-Legalization (.xls, 49.15 Kb)
  • original consular fee payment receipt. A letter of appeal has to be signed by the director and include: the list of documents that should be certified, name of a person authorized to submit the documents for legalization (apostille), and country where the certified documents will be presented.

If the application for legalization is submitted by a representative of a person or entity, an original power of attorney should be submitted (you will get it back).

In case of apostille, the power of attorney is not required.

MFA of Ukraine legalizes civil status documents (birth/death/marriage/divorce/change of name documents) only if they are issued or authenticated by territorial regional departments of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine or by Kyiv department of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine.

If you need to legalize a copy or/and an official translation of Ukrainian official document – you have to pre-authenticate it in the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine (before consular legalization).

Foreign official documents require pre-authentication in relevant foreign diplomatic or consular mission (before the consular legalization).

The consular fee is as follows:

  • personal document - ₴ 150 per one document (₴ 300 for urgent legalization/apostille);
  • document of entity - ₴ 450 per one document (₴ 900 for urgent legalization/apostille).
