About Us

A fast, reliable & hassle free legalisation service

In some jurisdictions further certification may be required after documents have been certified by a notary. In particular, the affixing of the Hague Apostille via the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and sometimes Consular legalisation may be required.

The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents, the Apostille convention, or the Apostille treaty is an international treaty drafted by the Hague Conference on Private International Law. It specifies how a document issued in one of the signatory countries can be certified for legal purposes in all the other signatory states. Such a certification is called an apostille (French: certification). It is an international certification comparable to a notarisation in domestic law. 

We can arrange for the legalisation of documents for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and foreign Embassies in London. We work closely with a number of bodies and have a close working relationship with the London Chamber of Commerce and the Arab British Chamber of Commerce. Client confidentiality is a key element of the first class service we deliver to our clients. Our couriers are specialists in lodging and collecting documents and can deal with any processing queries efficiently. London Legalisation Services offers its services to individuals and companies alike. Whether you are based in the UK, are an offshore financial service provider or trust company and need legalised documents such as qualifications for a work permit, going on holiday/business or need to establish a presence that will be owned by a UK or UK dependent territory registered company, London Legalisation Services can offer a fast, efficient and seamless service to meet your needs.

The process to authenticate documents takes time and London Legalisation Service prides itself on offering the most cost effective and efficient service to meet your needs. UK sourced documents will either need to be presented in original format acceptable to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (“FCO”), or copies will need to be sworn or witnessed by either a Notary Public or registered Solicitor in the UK before presentation to the FCO. Corporate documents from a dependant territory will need to be notarised in the territory of original and confirmed by the Governor’s Office prior to submission to the FCO. The alternative is to send us the original documents so that we can then have copies signature verified by a Solicitor in the UK and approved by the FCO prior to submission to the relevant Embassy for authentication.
