What's an Apostille?

 

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

In order to legalise a document, the embassy will need to see the apostille affixed on your documentation. If you haven't arranged for your document to be apostilled, we can obtain these from the UK FCO on your behalf.

Solicitor Certification (required for an Apostille)

 

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 the 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 a witness to your signature, then you should visit your local solicitor or notary public office to arrange it before sending the document to us for apostille.
