DISTANT APOSTILLE

You may not visit our office in order to have your educational documents apostilled. SE ‘Information and Image Centre’ suggests sending of your documents by any courier service (on condition that they are delivered directly to our office). Such rule is set to maintain safety of your documents.

To get your documents apostilled without the visit, before sending them to our office, you have to define the list of services for your documents and check their cost, fill in corresponding forms and pay off the services. In order to do this, you have to sign up at our web-site and create a request for Remote Apostille at your Personal Cabinet. Find more information about this procedure following the Instruction for Personal Cabinet Registration and Remote submission.

You may obtain documents with apostille during issue hours by yourself. Also we may send them to you by the courier service (regardless of your location) or to the recognition organization address, as well as to the courier service office. Courier service delivery cost is not included to the cost of our services considering shipment organization. We will send your documents by that courier service, which you rely on. This courier service must take the document package directly from our office.

EXPRESS APOSTILIZATION

When we offer express document preparation, this means that your documents will be processed in the first turn and their readiness will be controlled by our staff at every stage.

If your documents do not require any requests to be sent to educational institutions to clarify information for apostilization purposes, you have a good chance to receive documents with apostilles on the same day, or after 10 working days. However, certain documents (for example, all paper documents of old standard) require such requests. If the apostilization requires explanation or additional information, the Ministry of Education and Science sends an official request to the educational institution. Such requests and their responses are usually sent by mail. The educational institution has a right to consider the request letter for a month. In such case the time needed for the apostilization of your documents will be extended.

We offer you to accelerate this procedure, in which case you will receive your document with apostille within 20 working days. Then the official request will be sent in advance by fax or e-mail within a day and the response time will be under our control.

If you would like to order express documents processing, you will have to fill in an application and pay for the services of express document processing.
