Christmas Closures affect Embassy AttestationMike Harris
During the festive season, the Embassy Legalisation Service will be open throughout most of the Christmas period. However, The FCO, some of the embassies we work with and the Chambers of Commerce have elected to close for some or all of the Christmas period. These closures may have a bearing on the length of time it will take to complete your order.
The Christmas closures are different for all embassies so please contact us to check on the expected processing times for documents. It is important to note that most orders for embassy attestation received in our offices in the week leading to 25 December cannot be guaranteed completion until the New Year. Our team will be working to clear all orders before Christmas closures but we are limited by the embassies procedures. We will make sure that anything received towards the end of December will be processed as quickly as possible. Please see Embassy Legalisation Christmas Opening Hours for information on when we will be available to offer updates and information on your order’s progress.

For only £50 including VAT we can send your documents anywhere in the world within 3 working days plus letters and extra documents can be included at no extra cost.
