Superlegalization of Documents

Apostillation is a procedure that consists in obtaining a stamp (Apostilla) from the competent authorities of a state party to the Hague Convention on the official documents issued in that country that are to be used on the territory of another state party to the Convention
The superlegalization procedure consists basically in:

  • Endorsement of the original document at the Ministry of Justice / Ministry of Education / Ministry of Health / Ministry of Foreign Affairs / Chamber of Notaries Public (depending on the type of documents);
  • Legalization of the translator’s signature by a Notary Public;
  • Authorized translation into the language of the country where it will be used or into an international language made by a translator authorized by the Ministry of Justice;
  • Superlegalization of the Notary’s signature and seal by the Chamber of Notaries Public;
  • Superlegalization of the Chamber of Notaries Public’s seal by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs;
  • Final superlegalization by the consular section of that state in Romania

We highly recommend you pay attention to the following:

  • The study documents can be superlegalized on the original by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs only after they were endorsed by the Ministry of Education
  • The original documents issued by the Ministry of Health (certificates, recommendations) will be superlegalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs only after they were endorsed by the Legal Department of the Ministry of Health. The medical certificates must be endorsed by the County Health Department before being superlegalized
  • In the case of superlegalization by the Consular Section, the fees, terms and deadlines differ depending on the operating program of each embassy. Please contact us and we will correctly inform you, as appropriate
