Apostillation Service

The apostille certification guarantees the recognition of an official document issued by a state institution in any of the other States signatory to the Hague Convention, without other requirements.

If the document is to be used in a State which is not a member of the Hague Convention, in order to recognize the official act is necessary to obtain super legalization.

TIPS:

Before requesting translation of documents, make sure that:
  • The information mentioned in the document corresponds to the reality, especially in the court decisions, where appear the most transcription errors.
  • The translator must translate the name/surname as they appear in the original act.
  • The documents have all the necessary endorsements, respectively the Endorsement of Line Ministry (ex.: for medical certificates – Ministry of Health and Family) and the endorsement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Apostille). Some countries (especially Italy and Spain) expressly require these endorsements in order to demonstrate the originality of the act.
  • The civil registry documents are for international use – the old ones are not recognized abroad. The certifications for international use are obtained from the civil registry where was issued the old certificate.
  • The documents are legible, readable and contain no erasures or alterations. In this case, alterations or erasures must be endorsed/signed by the authority which issued the document.
  • For translations from Russian, Greek or Hebrew you should have a photocopy of the holder’s passport or another act where his name appears in roman characters.
