What is a Notary Public and what do they do?

Foreign Language Documents

If you have a document that is currently in a foreign language it may be necessary to get an official translation of that document into English. A Notary can advise you on whether this is required and also help you to obtain a translation which can be certified as authentic.

Do I need Legalisation or Apostille?

Certain countries may also require the additional step of the document being Legalised. This is a process whereby the Foreign and Commonwealth Office confirm the validity of the Notary’s signature and seal. Once this check has been carried out a certificate called an ‘Apostille’ is attached to the notarised document.
The need for Legalisation depends on the country involved and your Notary can advise you on this.
