Apostille Certificate Details


In 1961, the process for legalising documents for use abroad was abolished and replaced by a certificate of authenticity, called an ‘Apostille’ under the Hague Convention.

Each Apostille is signed, dated, given a unique reference number and is registered by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in the UK.

To clarify, the ‘Apostille’ is a Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) certificate that is affixed with adhesive (by the FCO) to the back of the Basic Disclosure Certificate. It is then completed with an embossed stamp through the two documents and registered.

The result is - An Official Apostille (legalised) Document which is recognised in over 90 countries who signed or have since signed and become party to the Hague Convention. See - Apostille Countries List
