How to order:
Check which background check you have. Has an officer of the issuing authority signed your background check? Does the requesting authority need the original, or can you apostille a photocopy?
If your background check does not have an official signature, the document must be certified or notarised before an apostille can be issued.
If the requesting country (authority) accepts photocopies of your background check, it must be certified or notarised.
Contact us to place an order.
When emailing, please provide the following information:
- Do you need a solicitor certification or notarisation?
- How many background checks need an apostille?
- In which country will your background check be used?
- How soon do you need the apostille?
Once we have all the information, the team will assess your enquiry and give you a personalised and detailed quotation.
If you accept the quotation, we send an invoice to be paid, and the process of getting an apostille for your documents starts. We will take care of everything.
Once your background check has been apostilled, we will send you a scanned copy via email.
Regardless of what return delivery method is chosen (in person, self-addressed envelope, DHL etc.), we will inform you immediately as soon as the documents are ready to be collected or they are on their way back to you.
Assuming that you are not collecting your apostilled documents from our London office – we will also provide you with the DHL tracking number as soon as your forms have been given to the courier.
Note that we return documents with DHL (only). DHL return deliveries – both national and international require the following details:
- A full name
- Full return address
- Contact phone number
How much does it cost?
A standard apostille for a UK background check starts from £79.
Other costs will depend on what service you choose (standard or same-day service), embassy fees if required and what return delivery method is required.
