I live outside the UK. Will my certificate translation be accepted for use outside the UK?

For overseas clients, that need to validate the authenticity of the certificate translation as having been produced in the UK, we also offer an apostille/legalisation service, whereby an apostille is attached to the reverse of the certificate. We always recommend checking with whoever you are presenting the certificate to, to identify if the apostille stamp is needed.

The Apostille Certificate (Apostille) is normally requested by foreign authorities and organisations so that the certificate can be used for official purposes outside of the UK. This means that the documents have to be legalised correctly before you travel and often within a specific time period.

Legalisation is usually required by foreign authorities before they will allow a UK certificate to be used for official purposes in their country. Apostille Certificates issued in the UK will be accepted but for the following countries they would require further legalisation. Obtain further Legalisation for the Middle East, UAE Legalisation Service,  Qatar Legalisation Service or Kuwait Legalisation Service or Egypt Legalisation Service.
