Birth Certificate Apostille

If you are overseas we can obtain an official copy from the General Register Office on your behalf (£30, 3/4 weeks or £70, 2/3 days) and return it to you after the apostille process. Contact us for more details of this service.

Birth Certificates may be requested by overseas authorities for many reasons. Common requirements are for proof of ID in relation to employment, purchase of property, marriage overseas, registering a birth overseas, execution of a will, plus many more. We can only legalise original or certified copies of certificates issued by the General Registry Office (GRO) or local Registry Offices in the UK. Please note that we are NOT able to legalise photocopies of these documents, even if they have been signed by a practising UK solicitor or notary or attached to a notarial cover sheet.
