If you are going to move to another state for a permanent residence, to enter the university, to find a job abroad or to marry a foreigner, don’t omit one important moment – legalization of documents.
Legalization - is the process of authenticating or certifying a legal document so a foreign country's legal system will recognize it as with full legal effect.
There are two ways of legalization:
- Consular legalization
- Apostille (information on our site http://intercomtour.org/translation-services/legalization-apostille.html)
Consular legalization is a more complicated way of legalization than Apostille. It includes:
- Notarized translation.
- To certify the notary’s signature in Ministry of Justice.
- To certify the seal of Ministry of Justice and the signature of the authorized person in Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus.
- To obtain consular certification in the embassy of a necessary country.
The government of the Republic of Belarus has agreements with some countries about mutual pact that abandon the legalization. For instance, Minsk and Kishinev conventions, bilateral treaties.
Don’t postpone the translation of your documents! Time presses!
