Our Response to the Coronavirus Situation
What to Expect from Vital Consular
Updated on: 21st December 2021
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to cause uncertainty around the globe, we wanted to update you on progress in terms of document legalisation.
We have been available to assist our customers throughout this pandemic and continue to do so. All foreign Embassies and government departments are operating mostly as normal, although there may still be delays to some services because of backlogs and shortage of staff across the Christmas/New Year period. Certain Embassies are only accepting applications by mail, which is increasing the time taken to process these documents. We'll let you know if this is the case for your chosen country.
Whilst the rise in cases of the Omicron variant means some of our team have started working from home again, we are fully staffed and able to provide our services as normal. Some delays to our advertised services may remain, but we are doing all we can to minimise these as much as possible, and will update customers if timeframes exceed what is stated on the website.
The legalisation of Non-UK documents is still dependent on the lockdown situations across the globe and we are closely monitoring the situation with our colleagues in the various countries we service. If you would like a document legalised and would like to know more, please get in touch.
We are continuing to see increased numbers of legalisation requests and things returning to normality in terms of movement. Whilst this is a positive, we are remaining in close contact with Embassies and monitoring any changes day-by-day in order to keep you as informed as possible.
Thank you for your continued support. The entire staff at Vital wishes you the best of health during the next few weeks and months.
