The Apostille Service is OPEN - Covid-19 Update

UPDATED 05 JANUARY 2021

We are legalising all UK documents with the apostille certificate. We are a registered UK Apostille Service working with the FCDO (previously the FCO) to legalise documents. We are still open and processing as normal, our staff are working normally with social distancing measures at our offices. Customers are not permitted to enter our offices at this time but can hand deliver to our post box. You can order apostille services today!

How can we help with Apostille Certificates?

We are operating as normal with orders being completed in 1-2 working days in most cases. This is the quickest way to get the apostille certificate issued in the UK.

Legalising documents with the apostille is an essential service. We are assisting customers with documents that are often time critical. This may include the exportation of food, legal contacts, urgent travel home, repatriation of a body, power of attorneys, working abroad and many other important reasons to request an apostille.

Whilst services are operating we can also assist with less important matters like visa applications, legalising academic documents, registration of a birth overseas and getting married abroad to name a few.

Embassy Attestation Update

Many embassies are currently working normally but some are working limited hours. The Chinese embassy is currently closed until further notice. Please contact us for the most up to date information we have.

Deliveries outside of the UK

There may be delays for deliveries leaving the UK. Some countries have imposed temporary restrictions on UK air, sea and rail traffic. It is not clear how this will delay Royal Mail or DHL as some of their deliveries are sent as cargo on passenger flights in addition to using their own dedicated vehicles. Please expect delays for the foreseable future.

Deliveries within the UK

Domestic deliveries may be affected in some areas due to social distancing and staffing issues caused by possible self isolation requirements.

Do not hesitate to contact us for any updates or for information on other services we can provide.
