Embassy Legalisation service
Embassy legalisation of documents is often required when presenting a document to a country that is not a member of the Hague Convention. This is often referred to as attestation. Put simply, documents need to be stamped or certified by the UK based embassy or consulate after the apostille certificate has been issued.
Legalising documents with embassies is often called document attestation. We can assist in the attesting of your documents with our expert knowledge.
Every embassy implements their own procedures when legalising documents. For example UAE embassy legalisation has specific rules on collation of documents whilst business documents that need Kuwaiti attestation are processed via the Chamber of Commerce. The legalisation may be a stamp, seal, or certificate that is attached to the document. Processing documents varies and may take several days or 2-3 weeks.
Our embassy and consulate legalisation service can process documents with many embassies and consulates. For more information visit our information pages –
