The most widespread questions: Apostille – Germany

In 1961 was signed the Convention about Apostille, which have changed the order of giving to documents of international legal force. This Convention abolishes the obligatory legalization of foreign official documents for the countries-participants of the Convention. However, just Germany was against the Ukrainian joining to the Convention, because in the diplomatic institutions of Germany was submitted a huge number of false documentation from the side of Ukraine.

In July 2010 Germany acknowledged Ukraine as a full-fledged participant of the Convention. After this for the recognition of Ukrainian documents in the territory of FRG it is sufficient to affix the apostille stamp for Germany.
