Degree certificates and other educational documents require a specific process for legalisation. You must pass the document(s) to the Saudi Arabian Cultural Bureau in London (SACB) BEFORE they can be sent to the FCO to be apostilled. They can then be readied for submission to the Saudi Arabian Embassy in London. The Cultural Bureau will attempt to make contact with the issuer of your educational document to validate it's authenticity. Vital Legalisation can send your documents to the FCO and to the Saudi Embassy, but you must submit your document to the SACB yourself before bringing it to us.

Once you send your SACB-verified document to us, (along with the original copy of the document and a copy of your passport) we will have it certified by a solicitor and send it to the FCO on your behalf, before having it attested by the Saudi Embassy in London.

This is our Urgent service during which we will physically take your documents to each of the relevant government offices to have the necessary stamps applied. Once you have completed your order with us, you simply have to arrange for your documents to be sent or taken to our London office and we will do the rest for you. Address details for our urgent processing centre in London can be found within our Contact page

To speed up the time taken to legalise your qualification, you are advised to contact the registrar who issued the document to ask them to respond quickly to this request. The order will not go any further until this validation process has been completed and so it is in your best interests to contact them. Regrettably, due to the Data Protection Act, we are unable to contact your qualification provider on your behalf.

Due to the above process, the time taken to legalise an educational qualification will vary. It is not uncommon for this to take several months so please allow sufficient time to process your legalisation application. Once you have received the documents back from the SACB you can then send them to us for FCO and Saudi Embassy submission.

Please note: We are unable to assist with the SACB process and cannot answer any questions about your application with them. We can only fulfill the steps regarding the FCO and the Saudi Embassy.
