Apostille Service (Legalisation) - Republic of Ireland Apostille Service


UK GRO Certificates provides a fast and simple service to obtain an Apostille stamp on your documents issued in Republic of Ireland.

When you present a legal document in a foreign country, it is often very difficult to determine whether the document is genuine and legal. In 1961, the process for legalising documents for use abroad was abolished and replaced by a simple certificate of authenticity, called an ‘Apostille’, under the Hague Convention. UK GRO Certificates can acquire this Certificate on your behalf for your document and return it direct to your door or to a third party.

The Apostille Certificate is a paper attachment which is fixed with glue to your supplied papers. As it is glued and embossed with the Legalisation Office Apostille seal you may wish to legalise a certified copy so that the originals remain unchanged.

Within the UK there is only one official apostille certificate. There are some documents that in England and Wales look different to those issued in Scotland , Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, States of Guernsey or Republic of Ireland. For example English birth certificates, disclosure documents, criminal record checks, police letters, and court documents, may be presented in a different format. However, they are all issued with the same apostille certificate.

We can process all UK documents whether issued in Republic of Ireland or any of the UK countries and issue the apostille certificate within just a few days.
