What is ApostilleAn ‘Apostille’ is a certificate that is attached to an official document to verify that the signatory on your document is genuine.

It also gives overseas authorities that the person who signed your document is a recognised and authorised person of the organisation that issued the document. Each Apostille is dated, given a unique reference number and registered.

When you present a legal document in a foreign country, it is often very difficult to determine whether the document is genuine and legal. In 1961, the process for legalising documents for use abroad was abolished and replaced by a simple certificate of authenticity, called an ‘Apostille’, under the Hague Convention.

We can  acquire this Certificate on your behalf for your document and return it direct to your door or to a third party.

Why do I need an Apostille?

In order for documents to be accepted and recongised abroad in another country, they will most likely need to be legalised for authenticity. The body or organisation which you are presenting the documents to should be able to advise you whether you need to have them Legalised / Apostilled. You can obtain advice generally from the relevant Government Department, Educational Establishment, Embassy, Consulate or High Commission of the country concerned in London.
