FCO Apostille Legalisation

The legalisation process carried out by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office is official confirmation that the signature, seal or stamp appearing on your document is genuine.

We have developed a one stop solution with our FCO legalisation service. Our trained team can provide either a standard next day service via the Milton Keynes FCO Office, or for the more urgent time sensitive requirements we can provide a same day service through the London Premium Office.

Upon completion by the FCO, we can further process the documents if required via any Chamber of Commerce, Embassy or Consulate and either return the documents to you or we can forward them directly to the client on your behalf. Scanned copies and tracking numbers will be emailed.

Data Protection Terms

Following discussions with the Notary Society and with a view to achieving uniformity, the Data Processing Terms prepared by the Notaries Society (which can be found here) are unconditionally accepted by CDN when providing services to its Notary clients. All of CDN's other terms of trading that do not conflict with the Data Processing Terms shall remain in force.
