General info 

If you are a foreigner and currently reside in the USA, you might encounter the problem when some documents in your language must be signed by you.

Here is what you do:

  • print it, fill out, take your state id or international passport and go to any public notary (sometimes the university has a public notary for free); public notary only certifies your signature,
  •  now you have to certify the notary's signature with in your hometown court,
  • send documents with cover letter and payment to the State Secretary, located in the state's capital.
