  1. Irish documents take longer to legalise than UK Documents, because of the processing times involved at the DFA (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade). If you're legalising an Irish document, please allow up to one extra week on any stated timescale. 
  2. NOTE: Please be aware that ACCA Certificates require the work to be done on the original document, so a certified copy can not be made.
