Legalization and recognition of educational documents
Depending on the country of issue of your documents, they might be subject to the procedure of legalization. Legalization is the process of authenticating / certifying a legal document so that it would be valid abroad. This can be done at a Russian Consulate abroad or by the local authority in your country. For more information, please consult the Main State Center for Education Evaluation.
In case there is no bilateral agreement on mutual recognition of educational documents between the Russian Federation and the country of issue of your document, then it is subject to the procedure of recognition. This can be done by Main State Center for Education Evaluation
