A common question we receive frequently is ‘how long does the apostille last. Apostille certificates do not have an expiry date. The apostille certificate will have a date of issue but they do not ‘run out’ or ‘expire'.
When preparing documents to be used overseas, it may be requested that a translation of the document is also supplied. Providing a certified translation assists the overseas authority as they may not be able to read the English version. When a translation is requested from you, it is important to find out exactly how they need the documents to be prepared and whether the translations will need legalising.

Our all inclusive service ensures that UK birth certificates are correctly issued with the apostille and returned to you in just a few days.
