What does this service include?

Generally, services that require Full Legalisation include:


We'll check the documents before commencing work, to make sure they'll be accepted by both FCO and Embassy.


A registered solicitor will make a copy of the documents and stamp them with his seal of approval. May not be required.


The document will be stamped and approved by the Chinese Embassy, ready to be used for any official purpose.


An Apostille will be applied by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to prove the authenticity of the document.

Please note, some services may not include Solicitor Certification because they don't require it.
