In order for your document to be valid abroad or to be submitted to the Italian Consulate in London, it needs to be legalised by means of an apostille. This means that it will have to be sent to the Legalisation Office in Milton Keynes. All you need to do is send us your original document and we will deal with the legalisation service on your behalf!

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 and post it back to you by courier.


Premium service: 3 working days!

Same-day service: 1 working day

Standard service: around 20 working days
