Apostille Services

Apostille Services – FCO

Apostille is carried out by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in the UK. And is the authentication of a signature, seal or stamp appearing on a public or trade related document for use in another country.

It does not mean that the content of a document is accurate or that the Foreign & Commonwealth office approves of the content.
