The main office of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) legalisation department is now situated in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire and a satellite office has been retained in central London offering a premium service to major users such as firms of scrivener notaries. The apostille fee levied by the FCO at the central London facility is 71 per document as compared to 28.80 at Milton Keynes.

Although the Milton Keynes office will offer limited counter facilities for personal applications, the FCO envisages that the bulk of the work there will be dealt with by post with a three-day turnaround. We believe that the majority of our clients will wish us to obtain apostilles within the shortest possible time-scale. Accordingly, unless directed otherwise, we will apostille your documents at the legalisation office in central London.
