As seen as the document original was legalized, the document translation shall be sewed not to the copy, but to the original, and this translation shall be further legalized – such procedure is called the double legalization.
According to our many-years practice the majority of the world countries, which have not signed the Hague Convention, accept police clearance certificates drawn just through the double legalization. Only for some countries the single legalization is suitable (on the original). One of these countries is Brazil, which don’t accept the translation made in Ukraine, and after putting the stamp of Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the document is directly submitted in the Embassy.
According to the practice of documents preparation for use of a police clearance certificate abroad it is better for our client to get the certificate with the Official Seal. Many countries don’t accept certificates with the seal “For Certificates”?
