Apostille?

 

An "Apostille" is a sticker provided by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) which confirms that a signature, stamp or seal is from a UK public official or that a document is from a UK public body.

And for legalisation process, the embassy requests an apostille on your documentation. If you haven't arranged it, we can obtain these from the UK FCO on your behalf.

Solicitor Certification?

 

If your document does not contain the signature, stamp or seal of a UK public official, it needs to be certified by a UK solicitor before being apostilled. We can provide this solicitor certification service for you at a competitive price.

*Please note that solicitor certification is NOT a witness service. If you have a document, such as Power of Attorney which requests to witness your signature, then you should visit your local solicitor or notary public office to arrange it before sending the document to us for apostille.
