Foreign applicants frequently inquire about notarization of powers of attorney, copies and translations of documents.

Notarization of copies, translations and powers of attorney are the subject matter of the civil law and are therefore regulated by the legal assistance treaties applicable to civil cases. All such treaties are published on the official website of the Ministry of Justice.

To see whether notarization made in your country will be recognized in Russia, check the corresponding section on the website of the Ministry of Justice. If there is a (civil) treaty in force, notarization made in your country will be sufficient; if there is no such treaty in force, legalization will be required. Please read more here to learn about legalization (apostil and consular legalization).

Please note that legal assistance treaties release applicants from the obligation to legalize documents, but the documents must be translated into Russian in all cases. No translation into Russian is required only if the documents and notarized certificates are fully duplicated in Russian.

Prospective students can submit their documents for preliminary assessment for necessity of legalization in the Federal Service for Supervision in Education and Science of the Russian Federation. Please read the document below to learn more about the procedure.

Regulations on consulting services and preliminary assessment of foreign certificates of education and (or) qualifications for necessity of legalization of such foreign certificates of education and (or) qualifications in Russia in the Federal Service for Supervisions in Education and Science.

About Tomsk

Stas Burkin, young writer and the winner of«Debut» literarary award, was born and studied in Tomsk. Now he lives in Paris, but he still remembers his native city and speaks of it warmly: «For some reason, many inhabitants of Tomsk still cannot believe that they live in the best and the most culturally rich city behind the Ural Mountains. They do not believe that in the vast area which amounts to one tenth of our planet and where millions and millions of people live, Tomsk is distinguished as a sacred and elite place. It is easier for me to find a good specialist in oriental studies, a good writer or a sculptor here than in other parts of Russia. Tomsk atmosphere is splendid. It is an incredible mixture of cultures, arts and interests, just like Paris. Lives and actions of people that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. This city was destined to become a fictitious character».
