Apostille on the birth certificate

One of the most important documents for every person, which certifies his identity and can be used at any age, is the birth certificate. Issued in any year, it is valid throughout Ukraine. However, when you plan to travel abroad and want to legalize all certificates, passports and other documents, you must go through the apostillation procedure. This is the most simplified and quite simple format, during which it is possible to put a special stamp on the birth certificate. And thus make it valid in all countries that have signed the Hague Convention.

The apostille on the birth certificate is affixed within a few working days. You can also order an urgent procedure and fully delegate the entire process to Ukrainian Touch specialists. We accept your birth certificates, give the document to the Ministry for apostillation and send back the finished one, including the translated version, which you can later use on the territory of other countries.

Why do you need an apostille for a birth certificate?

An apostille for a birth certificate may be required during a number of procedures in countries participating in the Hague Convention. Including for:

  • issuing a visa;
  • admission to a higher educational institution;
  • job placement;
  • registration of marriage with a foreigner;
  • obtaining citizenship or a residence permit.

How to get an apostille for a birth certificate

First of all, it is important to clarify what the requirements are for a birth certificate. If you want to go through the apostillation procedure, the corresponding stamp can be applied only on documents that belong to the new sample. That is, they meet the main legislative requirements of Ukraine. As of today, an apostille is not affixed to a child’s birth certificate if the document was issued during the USSR or before 2003. It was then that the reformatting of certificates took place and it was decided to abandon the booklet format.

What to do if until now you used an old-style birth certificate? After all, on the territory of Ukraine, such documents are still considered valid for a number of procedures. It is necessary to update the format by contacting the civil status registration authorities. There you can get a copy of the certificate, but already in a new, up-to-date form.
