Open as normal and legalising documents for you.
During December we will be working hard to clear all orders. Completion of orders will depend on the services that you require and current processing times with the embassies.
Apostille only – Orders arriving on or before 20 December should be completed and dispatched by 23rd December (subject to verifying signatures)
Embassy orders – Orders arriving in the first week of December should be completed before the office closes on 24 December. However, this will depend on each embassy and we cannot guarantee completion.
During the Christmas period the apostille service and embassy attestation service will take several days longer. This is because most solicitors, embassies and government offices are closed for Christmas. It is impossible to get document signatures verified and embassy stamps during this time.
Normal service will resume on Tuesday 4 January. At this point we will be working to clear any orders that began processing before Christmas.
From all of the staff at The Embassy Legalisation Service we would like to wish all of our customers a very Happy Christmas. We thank you for using our service over the last 12 months and look forward to supporting you all in the New Year.
