Getting your documents to us for apostille...


There are several options for you to get your documents to us in order that we can carry out your legalisation and apostille requirements.


First of all, here's a short guide for UK-based clients;

  1. Post Office - Visit your local Post Office and please use at least a tracked service (£2-3 for a large letter). Typically, we would recommend Special Delivery at around £7.

  2. Royal Mail Online - Go to this website and buy postage online, you will need a printer OR you can take a QR code to the Post Office and they will print the postage for you.

  3. Other Courier - DPD, UPS, TNT/FedEx and DHL all provide internal UK services. If you are sending lots of documents, or very important documents, this may be the better option for you.

  4. Ask us - We can provide labels for you, for Royal Mail or Couriers, with which we have high-volume discounts available compared to standard prices. If you don't have a printer, we can post you a label to arrive next day.


Secondly, a guide for international clients;

  1. Local Postal Services - The reliability of these services vary across the world. You will know best whether or not you can trust them or not. If you do send documents using Local Postal Services, please be sure to use a tracked and/or guaranteed service and check the compensation levels first, as if you lose important documents, it can be expensive to replace them.

  2. International Courier - UPS, TNT/FedEx and DHL all provide international courier services. There are some restrictions on use but these are down to the couriers themselves and must be explored through their literature.

  3. Ask us - We can arrange collection using any of the above couriers and have access to favourable, high-volume rates. You will need access to a printer but if necessary, we can courier you your courier documents.

  4. Replacement & Verifications - There are many documents that don't need to be shipped at all. We can apply for ACRO Police Certificates on your behalf - or if you ordered it in the last 90 days, you can ask them to send us a replacement/duplicate for about £15. We can get replacement Birth, Marriage, Death and other Register Office Certificates, from £25. Court Documents from £10. Degree Verification from just £25 too, so no need to send your originals. TEFL, CELTA and TESOL Certificates can sometimes be verified online from £10. Driving Licences can be verified online using our verification service, £10. Most of these options are cheaper than International Couriers.

Please get in touch if you have any queries about getting your documents to us, advice is always free and there's absolutely no obligation to place an order.
