For some legal documents to be effective outside the United Kingdom, they must be ‘legalised’. Legalisation is the official confirmation that the signature, seal and stamp of the notary is that of a genuine, practising UK notary public.
Stage one involves the Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO):
They verify the notary’s signature and attach an ‘Apostille’ to your document or to the Notarial Cover Sheet prepared by the notary.

I am familiar with the (often lengthy) documentation required when:
- Individuals go to work overseas
- Notarising documents for doctors going to work in Australia
- Nurses going to work in the Middle East
- Teachers relocating to UAE (Dubai and Abu Dhabi being the most popular) or Qatar
- Completing trade agreements with countries outside the scope of Hague
- Convention for example company documents to do with trading with China
- Individuals’ documents that need to be processed at the Indian High
- Commission; obtaining Indian visas: Person of Indian Origin (PIO) or Overseas Citizen of India (OCI)
What is required?
Please bring your passport with you and another document, perhaps a letter, linking you to your UK address. This information will enable me to be satisfied of your identity and to attest that you have appeared before me, signed a document in front of me.
