Legalising documents with TLC UK

Document Legalisation Diary

TLC UK provides a first class service for the legalisation of documents.

Generally speaking the FCO will not legalise documents that have not originated or been executed in the UK. We always recommend you send the original UK documents as opposed to photocopies (whilst in some cases photocopies can be accepted, they have to follow a separate procedure).

Once in receipt of the original documents, TLC UK will (depending on the request):

  • Provide a certified translation
  • Arrange the notarisation of translations
  • Attend the legalisation office at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Milton Keynes and obtain an Apostille stamp
  • Attend the relevant national embassy or consulate for any further legalisation or certification
  • For more urgent (last minute) requests we can attend the Foreign and Commonwealth Office London, where a faster premium service is available.

The service is competitive and reliable. For more information on our legalisation services or a free no obligation quote, please do get in touch or if you would prefer a member of staff will be happy to call you to see the best way we can help.
