FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT egypt LEGALISATION

The Egyptian Consulate General in London is the only official body that can finalise the legalisation process of UK documents to be used in Egypt.

However, there are pre-requisites: certifying the document and then presenting to the UK Foreign Office (FCDO) to acquire an Apostille stamp.

This can be done by yourself or by sending your documents to us.

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.

It takes 5 days on average to complete the legalisation process. This includes having the document certified, authenticated by the FCDO, and Egyptian attestation.

£150 is the starting price for the attestation of UK documents from the Egyptian embassy.

The legalisation process is 3 steps:
1. Certification – this involves a solicitor or notary whereby they sign and stamp the document
2. Apostille – this consists of presenting the document to the UK Foreign Office (FCDO) for authentication
3. Egyptian Embassy – the final step includes submitting the document to the Egyptian Consulate General in London for the Egyptian stamp.

A power of attorney is a document that gives someone else the legal authority to act on your behalf. To use a power of attorney in Egypt, it must be attested by the Egyptian Consulate in London. The power of attorney can then be used to allow someone else to handle your affairs while you are unable to do so yourself.

The only requirement is the document itself. Other than this no other information is required to have documents legalised for use in Egypt.

Document legalisation is the process of verifying that a document is genuine and has been issued by a recognised body in the UK. This verification can be done by a solicitor, Notary Public or other authorised person prior to being legalised by the UK Foreign Office and Egyptian embassy.
