Company Record of Achievements – £410
Certificate of Good Standing – £400

The document to be legalised must be certified by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office where the fee for certification is £75 per document.

It should be noted that the Consular Section of the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates will not legalise documents from Israel.

The fee is £24.75 + VAT plus the consular fee (see above).

Clients should remember to bring two copies of each document and that the name and address of the consignee or agent should appear on each document.
