Things to remember

An ACRO is different to a DBS Certificate (Disclosure and Barring Service) and if you apply in Scotland, you will receive a Disclosure Scotland Certificate. These documents have different requirements and are dealt with on their own pages.

Only the original ACRO document can be apostilled. No photocopies will be accepted, even if they have been certified by a UK Registered/Practicing Solicitor.
