Apostille, Certificates & Notary Services

Notarisation- £95.00 per document (or set of documents)

Notarisation and apostille are a formality often required for documents which are to be used overseas, or for certifying document copies. A copy of the document is normally notarised, but some documents such as birth certificates are not notarised as the original document must be used. The notarisation is carried out by a UK Solicitor and member of the Law Society. If you have more than one document please call us for a quote, we may be able to arrange a lower price for larger volumes.

Apostille- £95.00 per document

Once a document has been notarised by a Notary Public, and if it is to be used overseas, it may need to be apostilled. This means that the Notary’s signature and seal are certified by the U.K. Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office. The FC&DO will then attach an apostille or a Legalisation Certificate to the document. The fee includes the FC&DO fee and document return by Recorded Delivery (UK only). This normally takes around 5-10 working days.

A Premium Service option is also available with same day submission and collection. Please contact us for further details.

Legalisation- £ POA

Once a document has been notarised and apostilled, it then may need to be legalised by the Consulate of the country in which it will be used, if the country is not party to the Hague Convention.

The price and processing time differs for each country, please call us for more details.

Translation Service

If your documents need to be certified in another language we can also arrange certified professional translations. Prices depend on language and length of document. Please ask us for a free quote.

All prices include VAT, government fees and postage by recorded delivery (UK only)
