Here are a few examples of legalising a Power of Attorney (PoA).
If you have a PoA already notarised:
If an FCDO-registered notary already notarises your Power of Attorney, then we can get an apostille the same day or use our standard next-day service.
Standard service: £79
Same-day service: £165
If your PoA needs a notary:
PoA ( Personal ) + notarisation + apostille certificate
PoA ( Business ) + notarisation + apostille certificate
Remote / video notarisations:
PoA ( Personal ) + remote notary + apostille certificate
PoA ( Business ) + video notary + apostille certificate
The notary public can use electronic signatures to sign PoAs. There are two types of electronic signatures: advanced electronic signatures (AES) and qualified electronic signatures (QES).
Bilingual PoA notarisations:
Your lawyer must draft the bilingual power of attorney in a public form, which is a bilingual document with the secondary language in a parallel column.
Once drafted, you can email it to us for review. Our notary will add their information to the power of attorney and notify you or your lawyer if any changes are needed.
Other costs will depend on what service you choose (same-day service available) if you need a notary service, embassy fees if required and what return delivery method is required
