Sending birth records to the Ukraine
If you are sending legal documents from Australia to the Ukraine, you need to have those documents stamped with an apostille.
An apostille (Апостиль) is a certificate from the Department of Foreign Trade and Affairs confirming that the document is either (1) an original government document or (2) a document that has been notarised. Once the document has been stamped with an apostille, it will be accepted in the Ukraine.
According to the Apostille Convention, an apostille can only be issued on public documents that are:
- documents from an authority or an official connected with a court or tribunal;
- public administrative documents prepared by an administrative agency or government authority; or
- documents issued or signed by a notary public.
We assist many clients by arranging for an apostille to be stamped on original birth certificates issues by the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages. We also assist with notarising other documents, including certified copies of original government documents, so that they can be stamped with an apostille and sent to the Ukraine.
