In order for us to be able to act on behalf of an individual, a power of attorney must be formalized in the name of one of our employees. This can be done at any Russian or foreign notary or, if you are outside the Russian Federation, at the consular department of the embassy of the Russian Federation in the country in which you reside. If you have formalized a power of attorney at a foreign notary, you need to certify it in the appropriate way so that the power of attorney bears legal force in Russia.
There are multiple potential situations you may find yourself in:
- If the power of attorney was processed in a country featured on the list of countries that have signed the Hague Convention, all you’ll have to do is have an “apostille” stamped on it.
- If the power of attorney was processed in a country not featured on the list of countries that have signed the Hague Convention, it must be certified for the Russian Federation according to the rules of that country.
- If the power of attorney was formalized in one of the CIS states, all you’ll need is a translation of the power of attorney from Russian and a notarization of the translation by a Russian notary.
- For a power of attorney processed in the consular department of an embassy of the Russian Federation, no additional action is required.
After obtaining the documents, we can send them to any address you provide to us for you. We can also have an apostille stamped on the obtained documents or have them certified for the country of interest.
