If you have executed a power of attorney with an Irish notary, this document cannot be used directly in Ukraine. To make the power of attorney legally binding in Ukraine, you must first translate it into Ukrainian, and affix an affidavit and apostille to the translation.

A translator’s affidavit is a document in which the translator states that the translation is a true and accurate reflection of the content of the original document.

An apostille is a special stamp that certifies the validity of signatures, status of persons, and seals. Apostillization of official documents makes these documents valid in all countries that are parties to the Hague Convention, including Ukraine and Ireland. Apostille can be affixed at the Department of Foreign Affairs of Ireland.

Documents to be provided to an Irish notary:

  • Passport;
  • Temporary Protection;
  • Proof of address
