Apostille Services in Russia
Apostille is the simplified form of the legalization that ensures that your document will be accepted for legal use in all countries that have signed the Hague Convention (October 5, 1961).
The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalization for Foreign Public Documents, the Apostille convention, or the Apostille treaty is an international treaty drafted by the Hague Conference on Private International Law. It specifies the modalities through which a document issued in one of the signatory countries can be certified for legal purposes in all the other signatory states. Such a certification is called an apostille (French: certification).
Apostilles are affixed by Competent Authorities designated by the government of a state which is a party to the convention. A list of these authorities is maintained by the Hague Conference on Private International Law.

Apostille is needed in order to grant your official document (such as Diploma of Education), given to you on the territory of Russia, same legal force on the territory of United States, and vice versa. Without Apostille your document (for example your diploma) might appear just as a piece of paper. For instance, in USA people do not know how the Russian Diploma looks like. For such cases you need Apostille, presence of which in the document certifies that this document exists and is official, and the people who signed it also exist and are authorized to do so.
The example of USA is not random. In fact, USA is one of the members of the Hague Convention since October 5, 1961. Russian Federation as a successor of USSR is also a member. That is why the presence of Apostille is equally recognized in Russia as well as in USA.
