To notarise a passport, you will need to provide the original passport to the notary. We can notarise both British and non-British passports. The notary will inspect it and make a colour photocopy. Next, the notary will provide a notarial certification confirming that the copy is a true and accurate copy of the original.
You may have been given specific wording to use for the certification, and if so, you will need to provide this to the notary and the notary will include it in the notarisation. Specific wording might include the notary confirming that the photo bears a true likeness to the passport holder.
Once the document has been notarised, our legalisation team will personally submit your document at the Legalisation Office of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) to be apostilled. We provide both same-day service and a standard 3-5 working day service.
For certain countries, you may also need the notarised/apostilled passport to be legalised by the Embassy of the country in which it is going to be used. Check out country requirements for more information. Our team can help with legalisation at over 50 embassies across the UK.
Get in touch today and we will answer any questions you have about the process and help you meet your requirements.
