Fast apostille service in just 1 to 2 days. No delays due to Covid-19 lockdown.

Apostille Service

Legalising documents is an essential service for people with legal matters outside of the UK. Operating in a Covid-19 safe environment we are processing apostille orders as quickly as possible.We are working to ensure we provide a fast apostille service during lockdown.

The government has announced a second lockdown in England which will impact many businesses. Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland also have restrictions. At the present time, we are operating the UK apostille service as normal and do not expect to see any delays with orders. Using our service will ensure a swift and safe legalisation of your documents in just a few days.

Embassy Attestation

At the time of writing we are not aware of any closures at any of the embassies we currently submit documents to for attestation. We will update this page if we learn of any delays or embassies closing due to the latest government rules.

Most embassies are completing orders for us in around 4 to 8 working days. The Chinese Embassy still remains the slowest service with documents being attested in around 3 weeks.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call, email or chat online (during office hours).
