Legalisation is the process whereby the signature and seal of a Notary Public are verified and confirmed by an independent authority. Many countries require legalisation also known as the apostille – a certificate of confirmation provided in the UK by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). Some countries require their London Embassy to add its own certificate (with our without an apostille) which is then recognised and accepted in the receiving country. I am able to guide and assist you through the legalisation process if required. The FCO charge for their service, and the consular fees vary depending on the type of document legalised and the country involved.
