What is an Apostille?

An Apostille is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries other than the UK.

The Notarisation of Documents is usually done by a UK Solicitor, this confirms that the documents included in the Apostille are a true copy of the originals.

To Apostille a document a Notary will apply a seal and sign the documents. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office will then attach an apostille to the documents, this confirms that the Notary’s signature and seal has been certified.
