Legalization

Effective April 15, 2012, the Republic of Uzbekistan joined the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961.Therefore, all documents originated in the United States and intended for use in Uzbekistan are not anymore subject to the legalization at Uzbekistan’s consular offices in the United States.


The following information describes the order of processing documents before submitting them directly to the appropriate authorities in Uzbekistan:

  • Notarizing at a notary public;
  • Attesting by a county clerk (public documents and court records are certified by the custodial of those records);
  • Certifying with an Apostil at the Office of the Secretary of the State where the document is recorded;

There is no need to legalize the documents originated from USA at the Consulate General of Uzbekistan in New York.

Legalization for Canadian documents

However, documents originated from Canada are still subject to be legalized at the Embassy of Uzbekistan in Washington DC since Canada is not a signatory to the Hague Convention.
