An apostille is a form of document authentication issued to degree certificates for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. If you possess a UK degree certificate and need to present this in a Hague Convention country, you may be asked to obtain an apostille. The following is a guide on how to secure this vital certification efficiently and cost-effectively.

Understanding the Need for an Apostille

An apostille certifies the authenticity of the signature, the capacity in which the person signing the document has acted, and where applicable, the identity of the seal or stamp which the document bears. For UK degree certificates, this means the document must be checked by a solicitor and correctly signed and certified before the apostille can be added.

Here’s how it works!

Step 1: Getting Your Document Certified

Before a degree certificate can be issued with an apostille, it must first be correctly certified. This certification must be done by a registered UK solicitor or UK notary public. The process involves verifying the legitimacy of the document. The solicitor or notary public will check the certificate is genuine through document checks or verification with the respective university, if needed. They will then add a certification to the original document or make a certified copy. They must add a statement why the document is being signed. They must also add the date of signing.

Step 2: Applying for an Apostille

Once your degree certificate has been certified, the next step is to apply for an apostille. This can be done through the Legalisation Office at the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), or you can use an apostille service. Applications to the FCDO must be submitted by post as they do NOT offer a public counter service. The standard service by post is generally processed within 2 to 3 weeks. Apostille services normally complete the legalisation of degrees in just 1 to 2 days.
