  • Apostille Service in England for use internationally

UK Official Records provides an apostille service to assist you in acquiring official UK Apostille Certificates for UK documents. The Apostille Certificate is normally requested by foreign authorities and organisations so that the document can be used for official purposes outside of the UK. It is also referred to as legalisation. This means that the documents have to be legalised correctly before you travel and often within a specific time period.

The Apostille includes a raised seal. The Apostille is also serial numbered which can be used to validate the Apostille's authenticity. We will arrange for your document to be legalised and it will then be returned to you.

Typically the Apostille Certificate is issued by the state from which the document originates although in some cases another state can issue the Apostille. Once a document has had an Apostille Certificate attached to it confirming the authenticity of signatures and seals it can be presented to any country which recognises the Apostille. The authority receiving the document should then accept the seals or signatures as true and valid without requesting further evidence or proof.
