Updated: 03/04/2020 - APOSTILLE SERVICES RESUME
The FCO will be opening the apostille service to business customers from Tuesday 7 April 2020. We are ready to get processing orders and to assist new customers.
The Apostille Service are pleased to announce that we have succesfully moved into our new office. The new location is just a few hundred meters from our old address in the centre of the city.
Having completely refurbished our new office we are now settled in our new home and continue to process all documents as quickly as possible. Customer service has not been affected and we continue to answer all of your enquiries by phone, email and online chat. Please send all new orders to the following address.
As of January the 23rd the authorities in Wuhan, China have imposed a city-wide quarantine due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus. As a result, there are expected to be transport restrictions for both imports and exports in Wuhan, the surrounding regions and potentially China as a whole.
This will likely impact return delivery time scales for both our DHL and international airmail services for items being sent to China. The extent of this remains to be seen. Please bear this in mind when sending your documents to us and also when asking for your order to be returned to China.
The run-up to Christmas is often a busy period for the Apostille Service. Many customers contact us trying to legalise documents before the holiday closures begin. We recommend all customers submit documents to us as soon as they can. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office, solicitors, embassies and other government offices will all close for statutory holidays and many do not reopen until the New Year.
Below you will find more information on our services and estimated processing times.
