Me and my fiance (both in Moscow) are putting together our application for an Aussie fiance visa.

We have all our documents. We now need
a) Certified copies of all of them
b) Certified Russian-English translations of about half of them

From our investigations it all seems hideously complicated and expensive, needing an apostille for every document in order to get an official copy and/or translation.

Has anyone done this type of thing here in Russia and knows a simpler/cheaper way to do things?
