• UK legalisation

    You can get certain official UK documents (degree certificate, birth certificate, divorce document, court document, Companies House document, certificate of incorporation, etc) legalised by the UK Legalisation Office to confirm that the signature, stamp or seal is from a UK public official.

    You might need to do this if an official in another country has asked you to provide a UK document and they’ve said it must be legalised.

    The Legalisation Office will check the document, including whether the signature, stamp or seal is genuine. They’ll legalise the document by attaching a stamped official certificate (an ‘apostille’) to it.

    You document will need to be couried to the UK, (in most cases) certified by a solicitor or notary public in the UK, legalised by the Legalisation Office and then couried back to Singapore. We have a reliable partner in the UK to take care of these steps.

    You cannot get documents issued outside the UK legalised using this service – get them legalised in the country they were issued.

    • We can also arrange document legalisation in embassies in London so that they are recognised in the destination country.
