It is possible for us to issue the apostille on documents that were not produced in the UK. However, it is important that you understand the following points.
If a document originates from a country that is a member of the Hague Convention then it is recommended that you get an apostille from that country. For example, if you require an apostille on a USA passport copy then we suggest you contact a USA apostille service provider.
When a country is not a member of the Hague Convention then it is not possible for you to obtain an apostille from that country. In this instance, you should explain this to the person requesting you obtain an apostille. You may need to contact an embassy in the country of issue. Alternatively, if they will accept an apostille from another country, then it may be possible to obtain the apostille certificate from us. When a document does not originate from the UK the common practice is to produce a certified copy of the original. Therefore we cannot issue the apostille on the actual document itself and only upon a copy.
If you have a document that originates from a country that is a member of the Hague Convention and obtaining an apostille from that country is problematic then we can also certify copies of those documents too.
We cannot process academic documents that are from schools or colleges outside the UK. We have no way of verifying the authentity of the document. You should contact the issuing country for assistance.
We must stress, that when obtaining a UK apostille on non-UK documents you should always check with the intended recipient that this will be suitable.
