The translation must contain all the text of the original document (abbreviations are not allowed). The same names and titles in the target language must be the same in all submitted documents. Translation of names in foreign documents must correspond to the spelling of names in documents issued in the Republic of Belarus.

All documents must be presented with copies in the specified quantity. Unless otherwise specified, a copy of all pages of the document is required, including apostille and translation.

The seals, stamps and signatures in the copy of the document must be legible and correspond to the quality of the original document.

The copied document must be completely placed within the sheet, without offsets beyond its borders.

When applying for multiple family members, the required copies must be provided separately with each application.
