How to get an apostille from England
The process of obtaining an apostille consists of several steps. First of all, you need to find out whether the document can be apostilled, i.e. whether England allows you to apostille the given type of document (send us a photo or PDF document). It is also necessary to find out whether the document will be used in a country where apostille or superlegalization is required. Superlegalization is a more complex process than apostille and is required, for example, in the United Arab Emirates. If the document can be apostilled or superlegalized, you can request apostille. You need to fill in a verification form filled in with information about you and about the documents you need to apostille, a blank A4 envelope with postage stamps and proof of payment (bank check, stamps), which you must send to an address that varies depending on how you send documents and from where you send them. The validation fee varies depending on the type of document. Postage for returning documents by courier or for a prepaid envelope varies according to the destination.
If a bank, insurance company (health, social or private), office or other governmental authority requires you to provide an apostille for a document from England (the United Kingdom), this means that you need a confirmation from the United Kingdom Government by signature, seal or a stamp on a specific document certifying that the document is genuine. This certificate is referred to as the apostille.
