What is an Apostille?
An Apostille is a certificate attached by the U.K Foreign & Commonwealth Office which confirms that a document has been signed by a notary or other public official and that the notary or public official is a notary (or Companies House officer, Birth and Marriage or Death registrar, etc. in the United Kingdom.)

​The UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office sign and place their seal on the Certificate and attach this to the Notarial document or public document to confirm its authenticity in the United Kingdom. It is a further layer of verification.

We are happy to arrange this for clients. There are two ways to obtain an Apostille from the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office. They operate a postal servicing centre where the notarised document or public UK document is sent to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office Legalisation Office with payment proof and application form and they place the Apostille on the document before dispatching it to a nominated address.

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office Legalisation Office currently charge £30 per Apostille using this postal service. If you would like us to handle the legalisation of your notarised document, we apply a charge for doing so. Please enquire for our current charges.
