What is an Apostille?

It 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 within the set are a true copy of the original.

To obtain Apostilled Documents 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. 

Why use an Apostille?

Once a document has had an Apostille attached the authenticity of the signatures and seals on the documents will be confirmed. The documents can then be presented to any country which recognises the Apostille.

The receiving party (could be an individual, business or government body) should then accept the signatures or seals on the apostille, which will allow your documents to be treated as genuine documents without further evidence or proof required.
