Consular legalization

Consular legalization 

Legalization of foreign documents for use within the territory of the Russian Federation

 

Foreign documents intended for use within the Russian Federation shall be legalized in consulates of the Russian Federation abroad after they have been legalized in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or other authorized governmental body of a country of origin in accordance with the procedure stipulated by laws of this country.

 

Documents executed or properly certified by consulates of foreign countries in the Russian Federation shall be legalized in the consular department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

 

Cancellation of legalization

 

According to the Hague Convention held on 5th of October, 1961, signed by the Russian Federation on 31st of May, 1992, and having cancelled the requirement on legalization of foreign documents, documents intended for presentation in governmental bodies of signatory countries shall be certified under a simplified procedure. In such cases a document to be legalized is not required to pass the common legalization “chain” ending at embassies/consulates of the destination country. Instead of that, a competent governmental body in the country of document origin shall affix it with a special stamp – apostil.

 

Apostil

 

Apostils certify the authenticity of a signatory’s signature and capacity and seal and stamp affixing the document.

 

The signatures, seal, and stamp on the apostil do not require any additional authentication.

 

Each Hague Convention signatory country determines and authorizes agencies conferred with powers to fill in apostils.

 

The Convention does not cover documents executed in diplomatic missions and consulates, as well as documents having a direct bearing on commercial or customs actions.

 

The consulates of the Hague Convention signatories in the Russian Federation shall not set apostils and legalize documents executed by governmental authorities or with the participation of the authorities of the country represented by them.

 

A series of bilateral treaties on aid and advance in legal matters and legal relations with regard to civil, domestic and criminal proceedings, which are concluded with the Russian Federation, as well as the Convention on aid and advance in legal matters and legal relations with regard to civil, domestic and criminal proceedings signed on 22nd of January, 1993, in Minsk by CIS countries shall determine a procedure according to which the documents issued by authorities of one participating country shall be considered as official and enjoy evidentiary force within the territory of the other participating country without any additional certification, i.e. without legalization.
