Next Day Apostille Service
Documents often need to be signed by a solicitor or notary public before the apostille can be issued.
The apostille certificate is added to a document that bears the signature of a public official or the seal of an official document. Many documents do not have a public signature or seal and need to be certified by a solicitor or notary before they can be legalised legalised by apostille.
Greek citizens living and working in the UK are regularly asked to provide documents to prove they are resident in the UK or paying UK taxes. These documents require the apostille before the authorities in Greece will accept them.
Over the last few years we have seen an increase in the number of Greek citizens currently working in the UK that need to have their documents legalised. Greece is now asking for Greek nationals to provide proof of residence in the UK or proof that they are paying UK tax.
If you need someone to act on your behalf in legal matters then you will probably need to issue a power of attorney. This formal document provides another person with the authority to act on your behalf for a specific purpose or may be issued for general use in many matters.
Issuing a power of attorney is common practice in both business and personal proceedings when you need someone to act on your behalf. Using a power of attorney in another country can save people the time and expense of travelling abroad to deal with legal issues.
