Today Apostille in Moldova is no longer a “stamp” in the truest sense of the word. Moldova, like a number of European countries, operates with the Electronic Apostille. That is, a document and a special code for it are registered in the state system. A printout of the security code and the name of the document is issued. No wet seals needed! Those wishing to check the apostille check it on the state website of Moldova by entering a secret code.

Documents that have been legalized in one state acquire the status of legally valid in another state for which (or for which) it was produced.

The key international document regulating legalization is the 1961 Hague Convention on Simplified Legalization.

If a document that is in circulation among the countries that have signed the convention is subject to legalization, then the document is legalized according to a simplified scheme: the competent authorities put an international stamp on it, and the legalization is considered completed. Such a stamp is recognized as having legal force by all countries that have signed the Hague Convention, and is called "Apostille".

If the document is legalized in a country that has not signed the Hague Convention, then a standard international procedure is performed, called consular legalization. In this case, several legal actions are performed with the participation of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Moldova, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Moldova and the consulate of the country of destination.

And legalization is decided separately for the CIS countries. At the moment, international agreements make it possible to consider documents that are in circulation on the territory of the CIS countries as not requiring any legalization. There are also several other special types of documents that do not require legalization, or whose legalization requires coordination with additional government agencies.
