UGL document legalization services in Hong Kong, which are provided by UGL specialists, should be understood as the implementation of procedures related to the apostilization of documents issued in Hong Kong.
Apostille is a series of formal events aimed at giving documents legal force outside the state in which such a document was issued. In other words, if you received any official document from the competent authorities of Hong Kong, then for the possibility of presenting it on the territory of Russia, a single translation of the text of the document will not be enough, since confirmation of its legal force and official status is necessary.
Since Hong Kong is an independent party to The Hague Convention, which abolishes the requirement to legalize foreign official documents of October 5, 1961, in order to give documents issued by official institutions of Hong Kong legal force in other countries (including in Russia), such documents must pass Apostille procedure in accordance with the rules established by this convention.
It should be noted that the apostille is always affixed on the territory of the state in which the document was issued. This is due to the fact that the official bodies authorized to affix an apostille on official documents confirm that the document is issued by authorized bodies of the state, complies with the legislation of the country in which it is issued, and has the force of an official document.
Documents issued by the official authorities of Hong Kong are subject to apostilization, namely:
- company registration documents
- documents issued by judicial authorities;
- documents of prosecution authorities;
- administrative documents: acts of central authorities, local authorities, other state bodies and institutions (certificates of registration of property rights, certificates of registration bodies of legal entities, etc.);
- notarial documents.
Documents issued by private law entities (contracts, primary documents, etc.) and documents related to customs operations are not subject to apostilization.
Also, in order to be able to provide documents apostilled by the authorized bodies of Hong Kong to official institutions of Russia, a translation of the text of such a document, as well as the apostille affixed to it must be made, which must be notarized.
