Apostille, Legalisation and Translation Services

If you are going to use British documents overseas for business purposes, you will need to have your documents legalised before they can be accepted and this is often a very time consuming process.

BAT Visas offers a complete document authentication and legalisation service.  Working with local lawyers, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and embassies and consulates throughout the UK we will take care of the entire process so your documents will be returned to you ready for use in the designated country.

If a document needs to be legalised for more than one country, then a separate original of the document must be legalised for each country.

We are also able to offer a translation service if you need documents translated into any language.
