Can I get an apostilled document while I am overseas?


Hello to you all. I am currently working overseas, and would like to get an apostilled document for my UK limited company immediately. Please advise whether I can do this remotely, from Japan, or whether I actually need to be physically present in the UK to obtain this document. Many thanks.



Don’t worry, you can get your company legalised whilst you are out of the country. You can download an application and post it to the Legalisation Office in the UK, along with the documents you wish to have legalised. When the application has been received, your documents will be legalised within 48 hours and returned to you by courier.

Alternatively, Formations Factory offers an online legalisation service. You can find out more here.
