Order Your Apostille Before Christmas

Approaching Christmas we hear from many customers with urgent documents that need the apostille or embassy attestation service. We recommend that all customers send us there documents as soon as possible to avoid delay.

Christmas is a busy time of the year for most people. Getting ready for family and friends visiting provides enough work for most people to do. However, many of our customers will be travelling abroad at this time of year for business or pleasure.

Getting married overseas at Christmas or in the New Year may require documents to be legalised. Certificates of no impediment, decree absolutes, birth certificates and sworn affidavits often need to have the apostille before you can be legally wed. These will need to be presented to the wedding coordinator or public official in the town you will get married.

Seeking new employment or renewing working visas can be very stressful, especially when you have a deadline to meet. With many government offices closed over Christmas it is essential that documents are submitted correctly to avoid delays. Using our document legalisation service will ensure a swift turnaround time. We will take of the complete process and legalise all qualification and academic certificates in just a few days. If your certificates need to be attested we can undertake the entire service in just a few days.

Companies requiring documents to be attested for contracts, distributors, bank accounts or to open an overseas branch will need to make sure all documents have been correctly certified. Working with the FCO and most of the embassies in London we make a complicated process as simple as possible.

If you have an urgent requirement to have your documents legalised by apostille then please contact one of our trained advisors. We will confirm the current processing times and discuss the best way to proceed with your order.

We will endeavour to complete as many orders before the office closes for Christmas. During the holidays the office will be open for a few days to answer emails and process orders where possible. Unfortunately most apostille orders submitted on or after 22 December will not be completed until the first week of the New Year. This is due to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Solicitors, Registrars and other public officials closing during the Christmas period. Most of the embassies in London will also be closed for a large part of Christmas and New Year.
