How to get an apostille in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan
An apostille on a birth certificate (and in general on all documents issued by civil registry offices) in Kyrgyzstan (officially: the Kyrgyz Republic) is authorized to affix the Ministry of Justice of Kyrgyzstan in Bishkek. The Ministry of Justice does not accept evidence of the old Soviet model on an apostille. If you have an old birth certificate, then before submitting to the apostille, you must first obtain a second certificate on the form of a new sample.
To obtain a repeat certificate, a notarized power of attorney from the document owner is required, or the owner must report to the registry office himself. If the owner of the document is abroad and cannot come, the power of attorney is best done at the Embassy of Kyrgyzstan or Russia in the country of residence. A consular power of attorney has the power of a notary and it does not need to be legalized.
Otherwise, a power of attorney issued by a foreign notary must be legalized and then a notarized translation from a foreign language into Kyrgyz or Russian must be made in Bishkek.
To submit a certificate for an apostille to the Ministry of Justice, a power of attorney is not needed. If the birth certificate was issued recently on a new sample form, but it was torn or the seal and records became unreadable, you also need to get it again. Damaged evidence can not apostilled.
P. S. Attention! It is important to remember that if the document is prepared for Italy or Spain, then after submitting the apostille it is necessary to make a translation into Italian or Spanish and to assure the correctness of the translation at the Embassy of Italy / Spain in Astana, Kazakhstan. Because in Bishkek there are no these embassies and the consulate in Bishkek, the closest consulate is in Astana, Kazakhstan.
