Certification is a procedure required for making a document legally valid on the territory of the other state. The procedure depends on the country which you plan to submit the document to be certified. Consular certification is required for documents intended for submission to countries that are not signatories to the Hague Convention of 1961, according to which the mandatory consular certification is cancelled, and the simplified apostilization procedure becomes possible. Consular certification is required for the following countries: Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, the UAEs, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, China (excluding Macao and Hong Kong), etc.
Consular certification, in distinction from apostilization, is a more complex procedure performed in several stages. The main stages of the consular certification include attaching the stamp of Ministry of Justice, the stamp of Ministry of Foreign Affairs, certified translation, attaching the stamp of the consulate of the country in which the document will be used. Depending on the country of the document destination, the certification procedure may differ; accordingly, it is necessary to take into account all requirements and nuances of this procedure in each individual case. The certification stamps are attached to the original documents or to their certified copies.
