Dear Mr Pobjoy
I am writing to thank you for your help in guiding us through the complicated and confusing system necessary for my son to have his Degree and CRB documents Certified and Apostilled. My son gained a teaching post in South Korea and was becoming very stressed as no one here in Blackpool seemed to know what he had to do and the web instructions were, as mentioned above, extremely complicated and confusing. Time was also of the essence as the school would only hold the post for a short time before giving it to someone else who had their paperwork in order. I phoned you on Friday morning and sent the documents express. You received them Monday morning and delivered the Documents to The Legislative and Foreign Office, which I believe is next door to your offices, by hand You picked them up by hand on Tuesday and sent them back to us express. It is Wednesday morning and we have everything we need to give to the Courier to send to South Korea. Not only was this an amazing service but you successfully removed all the stress and uncertainty in the initial phone call as we immediately trusted the time line you gave us.
My son and I highly recommend your service.
You have recently notarised and arranged an Apostille Service for my daughter for her degree certificates and Disclosure document.
I wanted to thank you very much (also on behalf of my daughter) for the quick and efficient service we have received from you
Thanks for the good service. I recieved my certificates on Saturday. The Brish Embassy here were very impressed with the service you provided and you should get some recomendations from them in the future.
The Legalisation Department of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) is literally next door to our offices in Milton Keynes. As from the 1st April 2011 you will not be able to attend the office in person. All documents that need Legalisation by the application of an Apostille will need to be done by post. If the documents are not in the correct form then they will be returned for correction with consqeuential added costs and delays.
Legalisation is the process by which the identity and authority of a Government official is verified by the State. This is done under the Hague Convention of 1961. Relevant officials include Registrars of Births, Deaths and Marriages, Registrars of Companies House and Notaries. Legalisation is carried out by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. They place what is known as an Apostille on the document. An Apostille confirms that the signature and/or seal of the official who signed the document is genuine. Documents which frequently require legalisation include:-
- Education Certificates
- Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates
- Criminal Record Checks (CRB)
- Certificates of no impediment to marry
- UK Court documents
- Powers of Attorney
- Certificates of Incorporation and other company documents
- Tax documentation
Further details of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s (FCO) requirements for legalisation, and an explanation of an Apostille under the Hague Convention can be accessed at their website.
Please contact Gareth Pobjoy or telephone 01908-662277 to see if your documents need legalisation.
