FAQ

An Apostille is a form of confirmation issued to documents verifying the genuineness of the signature and/or seal of a public officer.
This certificate is usually requested by foreign governments and organisations to use overseas. Once an Apostille has been affixed to your document, it will be valid in member countries of The Hague Convention. We can assist you with UK and Ireland Apostille stamps.
The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office was previously called Foreign & Commonwealth Office. The merger was announced by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in 2020, announcing the FCO and Department for International Development (DFID) to be one; now known as FCDO.
It is often a requirement by foreign authorities that documents are legalised before they can be used for official purposes in their country.
Legalisation does not certify the authenticity of a document or give foreign and commonwealth office approval of its content.
The legalisation office is the only competent authority in the UK to provide an apostille service according to the requirements of the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961, and to deliver a legalisation service to those countries not party to the Hague Convention.

Legalisation is the process of attaching an apostille certificate to a UK document, to confirm that the original ink signature of the UK public official, and/or the original embossed seal/ink stamp of a UK public office, on the document are genuine. In the UK, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office is the sole government entity responsible for issuing apostilles. For other countries it will vary, depending on their rules and regulations.

Yes, document legalisation can be done when you are overseas. You have two options; The first option is by couriering your original documents to our office based in London. Alternatively, a cheaper and easier option would be to send a scanned copy of your original documents via email which can be processed as true copies of the original document. Although, public documents can only be legalised on the original so if you require a birth certificate to be attested, for example, you will need to send us the original document.

Documents like educational certificates may be required by an employer if you are looking to move to Egypt. In this case legalisation will be needed.
If you are a doctor from Egypt, you are required to attest a confirmation/employment letter from the hospital you work at. This is required by the health ministry in Egypt in order to continue your doctor’s license. This is a document that will need to be legalised by the Egyptian embassy.
If you are involved in any kind of business or legal transactions with entities based in Egypt, you will need to get your UK documents legalised by the Egyptian Embassy. This is necessary because the Egyptian authorities do not accept any foreign documents that have not been attested by their embassy in the country where the document was created.

To legalise an education document, three documents will be required:
1. Qualification Certificate – for example, degree, masters’
2. Transcript
3. Letter of Attendance, with the following criteria:
• Mode of Study: whether full-time or part-time
• Type of Study: whether distance learning (E-Learning) or Face to Face learning (on campus)
• Location of Study
• Location of Examinations
• The actual dates of study (start and end dates)
We offer a package for all three documents to be legalised for £390

If you are planning to move to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), you will need to have your UK documents legalised by the UAE Embassy. This is required for situations such as applying for a visa or residency in the UAE. In most instance, employers will request the documents they need to sponsor employees.
The UAE Embassy may also require additional supporting documentation, so it is important to check their requirements before beginning the process.
