How long does it take to get an apostille?

When documents are presented correctly our normal service takes approximately 3 to 4 working days from the day that we receive the document. We recommend that you send your document to us by courier or Royal Mail Special Delivery. It is very important that the correct postage is used to avoid delays.

99% of our orders are completed and despatched within 3 to 4 working days. We recommend that you choose either UK next day delivery or DHL delivery for safe return of your documents. Details can be found on the order form.

Occasionally we may need to contact you to discuss your document. Delays may occur because a document has not been signed properly or an incorrect version has been supplied. To avoid these delays please see our section on which documents we can not process.

If your order requires a faster service then we can provide a next day service from the day of receipt. However, this will incur an additional fee. Please contact us by email for the latest costing for a next day apostille service.
