As Christmas approaches many notary public clients will still need their documents to be legalised, often by Apostille at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.  London Notary Public practice MD Pryke Notary Public will be open for most of the Christmas and New Year period as per our recent announcement.  We therefore thought it would be useful for all of our notaries clients, both businesses and individuals, to have an understanding of the office opening hours for the legalisation office of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.  Set out below are the amended business hours for Christmas 2012 and the sart of 2013 produced by the Legalisation Office.

We advise any notary clients requiring legalisation services to contact this London notary public at the earliest opportunity to insure that legalisation requirements are not delayed unnecessarily.
