The Process

The process to authenticate documents takes time and GLS prides itself on offering the most cost effective and efficient service to meet your needs.
UK sourced documents will either need to be presented in original format acceptable to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO). If these are not acceptable, copies will need to be sworn or witnessed by either a Notary Public or register Solicitor in the UK before being presented to the FCO.
Corporate documents from a dependant territory will either need to be notarised in the territory of original and confirmed by the Govenor’s Office prior to submission to the FCO. The alternative is to send us the original documents so that we can then have copies signature verified by a Solicitor in the UK and approved by the FCO prior to submission to the relevant Embassy for authentication.
