Legalization of documents exist in two forms:
Apostille – is a special stamp, which is affixed to official documents of legal entities and individuals, which are issued by countries participating in the Hague Convention.
Consular legalization – is a way of legalization of official documents of a wider range, which relate to foreign trade. These include documents issued by the state or other official agencies of the countries that did not participate in the Hague Convention. Consular legalization is a more complex and time-consuming procedure, unlike apostille.
