As the holiday season approaches, the Legalisation Office in Milton Keynes and London (and, by extension, us) will be feeling the festive cheer and operating with reduced hours after Friday, December 22nd, 2023, until Tuesday, January 2nd, 2024. (We’ll be swapping legal documents for holiday shopping lists and spreadsheets for eggnog recipes.)

Apostille services, holiday hours, and operations:

The last day we will accept orders for standard apostille certificates in our office is Friday, 22nd December 2023.
