The Dominican Republic is a member of the Hague Convention of 1961 and the FCDO Apostille only should suffice for documents to be used in the Dominican Republic.

However, before the Apostilled document can be used in the Dominican Republic, it must be translated into Spanish by a professional translator and the translation is required to be attested by the Consulate of the Dominican Republic in London.


The FCDO Apostille fee is £40 for standard service, £100 for premium service or £35 for e-Apostille service.

The Dominican Republic consular fee is £300 per commercial document and £200 per private document for official translations to be attested by the Consulate.


Turnaround time is likely to be 1-2 working days for standard service (paper-based), 5-6 hours for premium service or 5-48 hours for the e-Apostille service.

The consular processing time is likely to be 1-3 working days.


For the Standard Apostille Next-Day Service (paper-based Apostille), we must receive the original documentation by 11:00 am to be despatched the next working day.

The Premium Apostille is a limited service the FCDO can provide for a few eligible types of documents and they require evidence to support the urgency requirement. Please contact our Legalisation Team for further details.

Documents eligible for the e-Apostille must be first notarised with an Advanced Electronic Signature (AES) or a Qualified Electronic Signature (QES).

The Consulate also offer translation from English into Spanish and a quote can be provided upon request.

Method of payment: Bank Transfer.

Opening hours: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm Monday to Friday


81 Cromwell Road, 2nd Floor, South Kensington, London SW7 5BW
