When submitting Russian educational documents in the territory of a foreign state, it is necessary to confirm the international status of the document and the legality of its use in the territory of another state. If the country of the document submission ratified the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961, the apostille stamp is enough to legalize the diploma, otherwise the document shall undergo a full consular legalization procedure for its recognition abroad. The countries participating in the convention include most of the countries of Europe, the USA, India, Cyprus, Japan and many more.
A diploma of a higher educational establishment with an appendix can be apostilized in one of the following ways:
1. Apostille on a diploma of a higher educational establishment and an appendix (original).
2. Apostille on a diploma of a higher educational establishment through a notarized copy.
3. Apostille on the notarized translation of a diploma of a higher educational establishment and an appendix.
The option is also possible when the original of a diploma of a higher educational establishment and an appendix already apostilled received in Moscow or other cities of Russia or the former Soviet Union is filed with a translation into the required language, notarized and apostilled again. This method is called "double apostille." Although these methods do not differ in legal force, the host party may require an apostille on a diploma of a higher educational establishment in a strictly defined form.
We recommend that you clarify certain requirements in advance. A diploma of a higher educational establishment with an appendix issued in the Russian Federation, the Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic (RSFSR) or the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR) is subject to the procedure for affixing an apostille.
The term of an apostille of the diploma on the original issued in Moscow, a region of Russia, or the countries of the former USSR is usually relatively long. This is due to the fact that the Department of Education checks documents for authenticity before apostilling, sends a request to the educational institution that issued the diploma, and so on. To affix an apostille on the original, a power of attorney is also required to carry out this procedure, a sample of which we provide.
Apostille of a diploma through a notarized copy or a notarized translation of a diploma of a higher educational establishment with an appendix issued in the Russian Federation, the RSFSR or the USSR, has the same legal force in comparison with the original.
