Certification and Apostille/Legalization of Foreign Documents: Whenever a document is required to be submitted as a certified copy, it must be certified by a notary or lawyer officially approved by the Government in the country of certification. Certified documents further require either (i) a stamp of Apostille or (ii) Supra-legalization (i.e. validation by the appropriate government department, Ministry of Justice and competent Moldovan diplomatic office in the respective country).

Translation into English: Any document that is not in the English language (including certifications or stamps) must be accompanied by an official translation into English. Translations must be prepared by a professional translator (officially accredited by a court of law), a government agency, an international organization, or another similar official institution. If the translation is prepared in a country where there are no officially accredited translators, the translation must be prepared by a company whose sole or main business is doing professional translations. The translation must be signed by at least one authorized signatory of the translating company. 

Note that the translator should include in a clear and legible format, the date, their full name, capacity in which they are acting, residential or business address, telephone number, and email address/website. In the case of Translating Agencies, a letter-headed paper should be used.
