Legalisation application form

Please complete on your computer, print and submit it in your application.



Legalisation is the official confirmation that a signature, seal or stamp on a UK public document is genuine. It does not authenticate the content of the document. Legalisation is usually required by foreign authorities before they will allow a UK document to be used for official purposes in their country.

The UK does not require any documents to be legalised for use within the UK.
