Apostille on a birth certificate issued in Moscow, regions of Russia, the countries of the former Soviet Union is necessary for the legal operation of a document in the countries that have ratified the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961. This number includes all the countries of the Schengen agreement (Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and others), as well as the USA, Cyprus, Israel, Japan and many more (more than 70 countries in total). For countries that are not part of the convention, a procedure for full consular legalization of documents is provided.

Pursuant to the provisions of the Hague Convention, several methods of affixing an apostille on a birth certificate are allowed:
1. Apostille on a birth certificate (original)
2. Apostille on the notarized copy of a birth certificate
3. Apostille on the notarized translation of a birth certificate.
The option is also allowed when a translation into the required target language is filed to the original of a birth certificate already apostilled, notarized, and then apostilled again. This method is called the "double apostille."

All the above apostilling methods are legal and correct and have equal legal force. As a rule, the procedure for apostilling documents is clearly regulated. Meanwhile, different authorities may require different forms of paperwork, so we recommend that you check with the host party in advance which option is more suitable for them.

Affixing an apostille stamp on the notarized translation, certified in the established manner, and notarized copies of a birth certificate falls within the jurisdiction of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation on a territorial basis depending on the document issuance in Moscow or a region of Russia. Apostille on the original birth certificate is affixed in the registry offices of the Russian Federation. It is also worth noting that an apostille on a birth certificate (original) is also affixed on a territorial basis. For detailed advice, please contact the Moscow Time specialists in the legalization of documents.
