The Legalisation Office is the only FCO public office in the UK. It is a big, busy office in the Old Admiralty Building, where we legalise the signatures of officials, such as notaries or registrars, on certain documents. These documents will be used to enable people to live, work or conduct business overseas. 2002 has seen a great demand for legalising birth certificates etc, to allow people to marry in the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Greece. In the last financial year we issued 184,413 legalisation certificates - 144,998 were issued to personal callers and 39,415 were issued by post.
