Legalisation Services By FCO & Consulates

If you need your document to have effects abroad, you’ll likely to need the Apostille of The Hague. Most documents to be used abroad must also be legalised by the FCO and sometimes attested by the relevant Consulate/Embassy. A confirmation from a chamber of commerce could also be necessary for some commercial documents. We’re highly experienced at preparing and submitting documents for legalisation, and can liaise with the FCO, appropriate embassy, consulate, or chamber of commerce on your behalf. 


Legalisation of your documents at the Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO). If you need your document to have effects abroad, you'll likely to need the Apostille of The Hague.

Legalisation of your documents at the FCO

If you require the services of the Foreign Office to apostille a document issued in the United Kingdom, you have two possible routes: the standard and the premium (fast-track) route, depending on how fast you need to have your documents back. The standard route is more cost-effective and can be used for documents that are not time critical. Documents to be apostilled will be sent to the Foreign Office and then returned to you after the apostille has been affixed. The premium route will mean that one of our team will take your documents to the Foreign Office for legalisation in person, and the legalised paperwork will be returned to you on the very same day.


Consulate, Embassies and High Commissions Services

For some countries, you might need the attestation by the relevant Consulate or Embassy in addition to the Apostille of The Hague. A confirmation from a chamber of commerce might also be necessary for commercial documents or invoices.

Our team have many years of experience in dealing with the correct legalisation procedures that are required by different Consulates, Embassies, Government and other organisations. We have extensive knowledge as to who needs to legalise a document/certificate and where you need to go, as well as the prices and turnaround times at the different Embassies/Consulates. 

If you are unsure about whether or not you need any documents legalised or attested, give us a call on 0203 441 5095.
