/L E G A L I Z A T I O N  (A P O S T I L E ) OF ORIGINAL D O C U M E N T...

The L e g a l i z a t i o n of d o c u m e n t s can only be issued by the F o r e i g n, C o m m o n w e a l t h  &  D e v e l o p m e n t  O f f i c e (F C D O). Those requiring l e g a l i z a t i o n of d o c u m e n t s can have them l e g a l i z e d direct with the F C D O or via third party providers such as C U K  T r a n s l.

L e g a l i z a t i o n is the confirmation that a signature, seal or stamp on U K d o c u m e n t s (such as b i r t h, m a r r i a g e, d e a t h) is authentic. L e g a l i z a t i o n  is usually required by foreign authorities and most c o n s u l a t e s in the U K before they can be used overseas.

/L E G A L I Z A T I O N  OF T R A N S L A T E D  D O C U M E N T S WHICH HAVE BEEN S W O R N  OR  N O T A R I Z E D...

If the d o c u m e n t is to be submitted overseas, you may also need to have the T r a n s l a t e d document not only S w o r n  or  N o t a r i z e d but also l e g a l i z e d at the F C D O, not just the original document.

Please check with the c o n s u l a r  authority or the destination country authority you are sending the documents to whether l e g a l i z a t i o n  is also required for the t r a n s l a t e d document. You can l e g a l i z e  the t r a n s l a t e d document yourself at the F C D O or we can do it on your behalf in two ways:

- Standard service (three days).

- Premium service (1 day).

Please check that the destination country where you are presenting your l e g a l i z e d  documents is on the list of Member Countries of the Hague Convention 1961 for  a p o s t i l l e https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apostille_Convention. If not, after a p o s t i l l e  you may also need one last step, which is to submit the l e g a l i z e d  documents to the relevant foreign c o n s u l a t e  in the U K for further l e g a l i z a t i o n.
