Apostille service (affixation of “Apostille” stamp) is a simplified form of legalization of documents. It is applied in a document flow with organizations and institutions originated from member-states of the Hague Convention (“Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalization for Foreign Public Documents dated October 5, 1961”).

Apostille service (affixation of “Apostille” stamp) is a simplified form of legalization of documents. It is applied in a document flow with organizations and institutions originated from member-states of the Hague Convention (“Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalization for Foreign Public Documents dated October 5, 1961”).
The Convention presumes a special sign (stamp) affixed to public documents created in one state and subject to delivery to another state. Affixation of such stamp (apostille) replaces a more complex and longer procedure of consular legalization. The Apostille certifies signatures, title, in which the person who signed the document acted, and, in some cases, authenticity of the stamp or the seal affixed to the document. Documents legalized by “Apostille” stamp in one of the member-states of the Convention are accepted in other member-states of the Convention with no restrictions.
Matter of apostilization is handled within one establishment, it simplifies the procedure comparing to the consular legalization.
