Apostille for Belgium
Moving to Belgium for permanent employment, establishment of a legal person or concluding of an official marriage, you’ll face a necessity to confirm documents issued in Ukraine. You can officially use them in Belgium only after their legalization through apostilization. This procedure stipulates affixation of a certain stamp, certifying authenticity of translation of an official document.
Preparation of documents with apostille for Belgium
Apostilization is a simplified form of official legalization of documents, approved by Hague Convention in 1961. Belgium has joined to the mentioned above Convention, but there are certain forms of apostilization for various Ukrainian documents for their official usage in this country. Separate instructions exist for legalization of various types of official documents.
Note that Belgian institutions require double apostilization of Ukrainian documents. In this case the procedure is a little more complicated and it is described below.
- Apostille on the original of the required document. Firstly the stamp is affixed to the original document. The ministry to which this document will be submitted to for apostille depends on the very document. Price of this operation depends on the required urgency. We can affix apostille to some documents for one day; all depends on the chosen urgency by you.
- Translation of the original. After apostilization translation is performed. To use documents in Belgium, you may require their translation into Dutch, French or German. Our bureau offers such service for 150–280 UAH/document. You can be sure in translation quality. It is performed by experienced translators of our bureau mainly for one business day.
- Notarization of translation. After translation a document should be notarized. A notary certifies qualification of a translation and quality of the performed translation. The documents get registration number and notary seals.
- Second apostille. Second apostille apostilization is the next step. Second apostille is affixed to the original of the translation, confirms its correctness and makes it possible to be used in Belgium. In fact, the second apostille certifies legitimacy of the translated document. Any state authority of Belgium will be liable to take it into consideration.
