Do I Need Apostille Services?

When Would I Need Apostille Services?

Many countries require an additional form of validation of documents, known as legalisation, over and above the signature and seal of a Notary.

This involves either sending your documentation to the consular office of the relevant country for legalisation, or alternatively, if that country has signed The Hague Convention of 5 October 1961, the document can have a certificate under The Hague Convention attached to it which is known as an apostille.

Some countries require an apostille whereas others do not. In general, European and South American countries will require the apostille. Commonwealth countries or former colonies do not. To check the current status table please see the HCCH website.

In the UK the apostille is only issued by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO).

As part of our Notary Service, we can handle this for you. If your documentation is needed urgently we offer an express service which can be returned to you on the same day.

Our fees vary according to how long the matter takes and the number of documents required. We will always provide you with a quote before any work is undertaken.

Making an Appointment

It is not uncommon to need the services of a Notary at short notice. Appointments can be made by filling in the form below, or by calling us on 0800 056 6042 during office hours. Depending on the complexity, your Notary appointment would take between 20 minutes to an hour.

Remember!

In addition to the documents you need notarising, you will also need to bring 3 valid proofs of address with you.

Client Care

A notary public is not that same as a solicitor – we are separately regulated and your rights are different when instructing us as a notary. Download our Terms and Conditions here.
