Criminal Record

Document Legalisation

UK citizens seeking overseas employment or applying for a visa may need to provide an apostille on several documents.

Potential employers or visa authorities may ask you to prove you have no criminal history or that any history you may have falls within their suitability requirements.

We make the apostille service as simple as possible.

For only £54* we arrange for your criminal record check to be issued with the apostille.

* If your criminal background check has not been signed by the issuing organisation your document will require solicitor certification. The fee for the solicitor certification and apostille is £66.00. If you are unsure please contact us for advice.
