Apostille UK
The legalisation convention is the convention abolishing the requirement of legalisation for foreign public documents, also known as the Apostille Convention (5 October 1961). This convention does not completely abolish legalisation but shortens the chain so that only a single action is required, the addition of an apostille. A document bearing an apostille does not require any further legalisation by the embassy or consulate of the country in which it is to be used.

The Legalisation Office of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is the only competent authority to issue Apostilles in the UK.

Legalisation is the official confirmation that a signature, seal or stamp on a UK public document is genuine. It does not authenticate the content of the document. Legalisation is usually required by foreign authorities before they will allow a UK document to be used for official purposes in their country.

The UK does not require any documents to be legalised for use within the UK.

The primary function of The Legalisation Office is to issue Apostille Certificates to UK documents so that the signatures, stamps or seals on the document will be accepted in an official capacity when presented to a person, company or authority outside of the UK.

If you require an Apostille for a UK document then the team at The Legalisation Office can assist you. The Legalisation Office provides a quick document legalisation service obtaining Apostille Certificates for documents that originate within the United Kingdom including England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
