Apostille on the certificate of education

Certificates of higher or secondary education, issued by Ukrainian higher educational institutions or secondary schools, are valid throughout the country and are an official document confirming your general or specialized education. However, if you plan to move to another country, it may be necessary to legalize documents and give them legal force in the countries where you plan to live.

In some cases, documents are processed through the consulate. However, countries that are parties to the Hague Convention have introduced a more simplified procedure. You can order an apostille for an education certificate on our website. This is an official stamp that is placed on original documents and makes them absolutely legal in the territory of a number of countries.

Why do you need an apostille for an education certificate?

An apostille for educational attainment documents is affixed to:

  • a certificate of completion of basic secondary education, which is issued after the 9th grade;
  • a certificate of general secondary education, which is issued after the 11th grade;
  • diploma of a professional junior specialist or bachelor’s/master’s diploma of a higher educational institution.

All these documents are not required if you are going abroad for tourist purposes. However, in certain cases, legalization of Ukrainian diplomas of general or higher education is mandatory. For example, if you plan to:

  • transfer to a foreign higher education institution;
  • re-enter a higher education institution in another country – to confirm the Ukrainian diploma;
  • get a job abroad.

That is, if you are leaving Ukraine for countries participating in the Hague Convention for further education or employment, you must put a special stamp on all documents certifying that you received your education in Ukraine.
