Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during the meeting?

Most meetings are fairly quick – usually less than half an hour.  

Once you feel comfortable we will ask to see a couple of I.D. documents, such as passport and proof of address. We’ll need to take a copy of these, but rest assured that this copy stays private and won’t be used elsewhere.  

In case you need to sign the document in front of the notary, we can print it for you if you don´t bring it to your appointment. 

 If the document needs an apostille or stamp by any embassy/consulate, you will leave it with us and our dedicated inhouse legalisation team will attend to this for you. 


What type of payment methods do you accept?

We accept payment by cash, credit/debit card (included American Express) and transfer. 

We will also issue invoices and receipts of payment to out clients.


Can I have a scan copy of my document?

Of course you can. We always keep a scan copy of the documents and can be forwarded to your email.


What do I need to bring to the appointment

You need to bring proof of identity (for example a passport) and proof of address (for example driving licence or Utility Bill issued within the last 3 months)


What is “legalisation/apostille”?

For documents to be used abroad, they normally need not only be notarised but also legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Some countries also require Consular legalisation. Our dedicated inhouse legalisation team is on hand to advise you of the requirements and attend to this for you. We do ask that you double check the requirements before instructing us on the process as certain Notaries in other jurisdictions will accept documents without the apostille. 


Do you help with getting the “stamp” from Embassies/Consulates?

Yes we do. We are familiar with all the requirements, prices and timescale of the embassies/consulates in London so our dedicated in house legalisation team will handle this for you. No delay. No fuss. We like to keep things simple for our client.

One-stop service for notarising, apostille and delivery, did not know such companies existed. Great guidance over the phone, nothing seemed an issue. Good central location and Snowie is the best notary ever with his gorgeous smile and warm nature 😉 Premium service gets the job done in a hurry, documents arrived at their destination 3 working days later. Great work!

I’ve been to a few Notaries in London but going in to Castelo and dealing with one of their worker, Iara, can easily say this is the most professional, friendly and efficient services I’ve had. Doubt any other Notary can top Castelo. 🥂

I was out of the UK and requested some certificates (Educational and Professional) to be notarized, legalized, and then attested from the concerning embassy. Castelo Notaries have done an excellent job in terms of time and cost and got all the certificates processed even higher than my expectation. I would definitely recommend them.
