Official certification of your documents 

In some circumstances, documents need to be certified by a solicitor or a notary public before legalising. We can organise a wide range of notarial services through our trusted network and guarantee seamless apostille service for businesses and individuals alike – taking away the administrative burden and saving you time. 

We organise notarial services such as:

  • Confirmation of documents
  • A notarial certificate attesting the authenticity of documents and signatures
  • A statement, a written statement under oath, and confirmation
  • Powers of attorney
  • Determination of the validity of foreign wills
  • Transaction confirmation 
  • Confirmation of translations from foreign languages into English and from English into foreign languages
Which documents must be certified by a Notary Public before they are legalised? 

Official certificates such as birth, marriage, death certificates or court documents will not need further certification, as they already have the required stamp or signature. 

However, there is a wide selection of documents that are required to be notarized first before proceeding with the legalisation process. Some of the examples are listed below:

  • Copies of legal documents without actual signatures or stamps
  • Documents that are issued by private individuals
  • School grades from compulsory school
  • Invoices and VAT (Value Added Tax) Certificates

Before attaining an apostille for your documents, we will advise you which (if any) of your documents need further certification. 

Please note that we are not a notarial practice, are not regulated as such, and have no notaries working for us. We do, however, have business relationships with those notaries that we use to provide the services.
