What is an Apostille?

An Apostille certificate legalises documents so that they can be used abroad. The Apostille is recognized in over 90 countries, however please note that some countries require further legalization such as Attestation by the corresponding embassy, which APCS also provide.

Each Apostille is signed, dated and given a unique reference number.

Disclosure Scotland send the certificate to us and we get it certified by a local solicitor

We post your certificate to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in the UK where the Apostille is applied
