Understanding UK Employer Letters

Employer letters encompass a range of documents issued by employers to their employees. These documents often include:


  • Employment Verification Letters: Official statements confirming an individual’s employment status, including details like job title, dates of employment and salary.


  • Reference Letters: Letters that endorse an employee’s skills, character and work performance are often required for job applications or immigration processes.


  • Salary Certificates: Documents providing proof of an individual’s salary, which may be requested for various financial and legal purposes.


  • Experience Certificates: Certificates that validate an individual’s work experience areoften required when switching jobs or applying for further education.


  • No Objection Certificates (NOC): Documents granting permission for employees to pursue certain activities or opportunities outside of their current employment.


The Significant Role of Notarised and Apostilled Employer Letters

A notarised and apostilled letter from your employer may be required for various reasons:


  • Immigration and Visa Applications: Many immigration authorities require notarised employment verification letters or reference letters to confirm an individual’s work history and financial status.


  • Job Applications: Some job applications, especially for positions abroad, may necessitate notarised reference letters or experience certificates.


  • Financial Transactions: Salary certificates and employment verification letters are often required for loan applications, mortgage processes or other financial transactions.


  • Legal Proceedings: In legal matters, notarised employer letters can serve as essential evidence or support for a case.


  • Educational Pursuits: Experience certificates and reference letters may be needed when applying for further education or professional courses.

The Process of Notarising and Apostilling Letters From an Employer

The process to notarise and apostille a letter from an employer depends on how it was issued to you:

  • An original wet ink signed letter


If you received a physical wet ink signed document, we can either notarise the original or a copy.  We will need to contact the issuer to verify that they supplied the letter and that it is genuine.  We will notarise the letter and then submit it to the FCDO for the apostille.


We always recommend checking with the ultimate recipient of the letter from an empoyer as to whether they would require the original or if a copy would be acceptable.

  • Electronically as a PDF


If you only received an electronically issued letter from an employer, we will need to verify it is authentic, and then notarise the electronic copy provided to you.  We can then submit the notarised copy to the FCDO to be apostilled.


Most documents will need to be notarised and apostilled.  For certain countries and authorities, only notarisation may be required, however in other instances you may also need Consular Legalisation after an apostille.  Check our Country Requirements List for more information.
