You can pay with a bank card on our Belarusian website.

There are two main ways to legalize documents: consular legalization and placing an apostille.

An apostille is a simplified method for the international certification of documents used among the signatories to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for the Legalisation of Foreign Public Documents (1961).

An apostille authenticates the seal or stamp on a document, as well as the signature and position of the person who signed the document.

Depending on the requirements of the authority that requires your documents, an apostille can be affixed to original documents, notarized copies, or even translations themselves.

If you have any apostille-related questions, do not hesitate to call our managers or contact them via “online consultant.” We’ll be happy to help you deal with any challenge and save your time!

Consular legalization

Consular legalization is the way to legalize documents for countries that are not parties to the Hague Convention of 1961.

In Belarus, original documents and notarized copies are legalized at the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or consular offices of the Republic of Belarus. Upon legalization, the signature of the official who legalized the document must be authenticated in the embassy of the foreign state, in which the document will be used, or in foreign consular services of the Republic of Belarus.

For more details on the legalization process, please contact our managers.
