Formalizing Russian Documents for India
India is a unique country, home to over 400 ethnic groups speaking more than 447 languages and 2,000 dialects! And there’s much more to the country than that.
Did you know?
- India was where algebra and trigonometry first originated
- Mumbai is at the same time the richest and the poorest city in India, since it combines skyscrapers alongside slums
- India is the largest democratic country in the world (with a population of over a billion people)
- there are no formalized traffic laws in India: any type of vehicle can move in any way the person wishes, alongside pedestrians and shopping carts
- the history of yoga in Indian culture dates back well over 5,000 years
How does one formalize their documents to resettle to India?
India signed the Hague Convention on October 5, 1961, so the very first thing you’ll have to do is get apostille stamps on your documents.
An apostille is a special stamp placed on official documents issued by institutions of a single nation so that they are recognized in another nation. An apostille gives Russian documents legal force on the territory of India.
After an apostille is stamped on your document, you’ll need to translate the document from Russian into English and have a notary certify the translation. The document must be accepted in this form at the submission location on the territory of India.
