As Ukraine is a signatory to the Apostille Convention, it means all documents issued in Ukraine should be then apostilled by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Ministry of Justice of Ukraine or Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine for their further use and application in USA, UK/Great Britain and any other country of Europe.
In Ukraine the top documents like police clearance certificates (criminal records, police records, certificates of good conduct, police certificates, non-conviction certificates, police checks, PCC), diplomas, diploma supplements, transcripts, school certificates, powers of attorney, judgments, birth certificates, marriage certificates, divorce certificates, death certificates, medical certificates and records, affidavits are mostly issued in Kyiv/Kiev, Boryspil, Brovary, Bila Tserkva, Poltava, Chernihiv, Cherkasy, Kharkiv/Kharkov, Sumy, Kropyvnytskyi/Kirovohrad, Dnepr/Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia/Zaporozhye, Mariupol, Donetsk, Lugansk, Kramatorsk, Sloviansk/Slaviansk, Severodonetsk, Kryvyi Rih/ Krivoy Rog, Dneprodzerzhinsk/Kamenskoe, Simferopol, Sevastopol, Yalta, Kerch, Feodosiya, Yevpatoriya, Kherson, Mykolaiv/Nikolaev, Odessa, Vinnytsia, Zhytomyr, Rivne, Khmelnytskyi, Kamianets-Podilskyi, Lutsk, Lviv, Ternopil, Ivano-Frankivsk, Uzhhorod, Mukachevo, Chernivtsi for further submission on the territory of USA, UK/Great Britain (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland) or in any other corner of Europe. Thus, such documents, as mentioned above, are to be apostilled on the territory of Ukraine by a respective competent ministry only, since embassies and consulates of Ukraine overseas are not authorized to apostille and attest Ukrainian documents.
Why USA, UK or Europe? These destinations are extremely popular among residents and non-residents in Ukraine, that’s why most documents are executed, translated, apostilled, attested and authenticated for these territories. However, each of these states has its own application and submission policies, making sense to handle all this paperwork to a professional European translation and apostille company.
