Legalisation Service

In order for your documents to be accepted in certain countries they may insist that, once notarised and then apostilled, your documents are subject to an additional level of verification in that they must go to the UK-based Embassy or consulate of the receiving country and verified. This process is commonly known as legalisation and involves lodging your documents with that country’s Embassy or consulate and having them counter-signed and stamped.

Having your documents legalised can add considerable complexity to the process of getting your documents ready for sending overseas as all consulates and Embassies have different procedures and costs.

It is highly advisable to speak to the recipient authority to find out what their exact requirements are in order for your documents to be accepted by them.
