REMOTE VIDEO APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE
As an FCO registered Notary Public, I am able to get documents an Apostille/Legalisation stamp. Check the costs page for more details. An urgent Apostille service is available.
An Apostille is a stamp issued under the Hague Convention, which is sometimes required when sending documents abroad. In order to get an Apostille, the document needs to be Notarised or issued by another public official, such as a Registrar.
Fingerprint samples taken with ink and can be applied to a document supplied to you by the requesting body or department; or I can supply a standard document if you have not been provided with one.
£70 PER SET

What is a Notary Public?
A Notary Public is a registered official, internationally recognised to attest, certify and authenticate documents.
I am registered with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London, meaning that any documents also requiring an Apostille (or legalisation) can be so dealt with here in Scotland. For more urgent Apostille services, I have an agent in London who will take the document to the FCO to have it dealt with on a same day service.
Most clients are from the Edinburgh and surrounding areas, but I am able to assist with those further away via video appointment.
I hold Professional Liability cover of £1m.
Are you able to come to me?
Yes. I regularly visit clients at their offices or homes, particularly those who are not mobile. There is an additional charge for this service. Otherwise, I can meet you in Edinburgh (when working in the office) or in Midlothian where I base myself most of the time.
How quick can I get an Apostille? How do I know if I need an Apostille?
2 days if the document is with me is before 3pm. If you are unsure whether you need an Apostille, speak with the person or organisation who has requested the documents. For example, speak to your wedding planner if you are getting married abroad and have been asked to provide a certificate of no impediment (a CONI).
