Welcome to the website of Michael Lindley
Notary Public in London – Apostilles and Legalisation for Dubai

I am a Notary Public based in Central London working with individuals and corporate clients based in the U.K. and Internationally including Dubai.

Together with my team we offer a full range of Apostille and Legalisation services underpinned by expertise and experience in international transactions.

Apostille - Problem in Dubai

It is not possible to have a document Apostilled in Dubai, which creates significant problems where the recipient requires the document to be Apostilled, before it can be accepted in their Country.

Apostille – Solution in Dubai

I am able to Apostille and Legalise in the U.K. a wide range of documents for use Internationally on behalf of Individuals and Businesses based in Dubai. Once Apostilled / Legalised I can then send them by International Courier to the final destination.

If you would like to know more about my services and how I can help Apostille and Legalise your documents please contact me.

What are Apostilles?

An Apostille is an internationally recognised Certificate which is required to be endorsed on a document before the document can be accepted in a particular Country.

There are a wide variety of documents for companies and individuals which require Apostilling for use internationally. In many cases the recipient of the document will have requested that it is Apostilled. 

For international documents it is possible to have the Apostille issued in the U.K. by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

In the U.K. the Apostille process normally takes about 5 days to complete from the receipt of the documents.

What is Legalisation?

Legalisation is the process where certain documents have a certificate endorsed on them by the Embassy of the Country where they are to be used.

This can also be done at the Embassies in London for a large number of Countries

Legalisation is often required for documents going to many Countries in the Middle East, South East Asia, China and South America.

In order for the document to be legalised in London it must first be Apostilled in the United Kingdom

We have many years of experience in relation the process of Legalising documents and we know the specific requirements for each Country.

The timescale for legalising a document varies depending on the particular Country the document is being sent to.
