Document for use in Jordan needs first to be legalised by way of FCO Apostille and then submitted to the Consulate of Jordan for further attestation.
Documents related to commercial matters can either be legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office or the Arab British Chamber of Commerce prior to submitting to the Jordanian Consulate for further attestation.
The consular fee is £63.20 per document related to commercial matters, £118.40 per commercial document incl. London and Arab Chambers fees and £10.20 per document related to personal matters.
Turnaround time is likely to be 3-4 working days for processing personal documents.
For commercial documents, if London and Arab Chambers legalisation is required, turnaround time is likely to be 7-8 working days.
The document must refer to Jordan, and, if referring to any other country within its contents then is likely to be rejected.
Educational documents issued from an educational institute based in the UK for the purpose of accreditation from the Ministry of Higher Education of Jordan can be legalised from the British Council in Amman, so there is NO NEED for the Jordanian Consulate legalisation or the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office Apostille.
All documents issued in Jordan which need to be used in the UK should be legalised from the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Amman to be able to be legalised by the Jordanian Consulate in London.
Legalising such documents is free of charge.
Bundled documents are accepted under one notarial certificate and one Apostille, and in this case only one consular fee would apply.
For legalisation of documents originated from the British Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies, once notarised and Apostilled by the relevant authorities in the region of origin, the documents need to be further Apostilled by the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) in order to be legalised by the Consulate.
For legalisation of Powers of Attorney, the following instructions must be observed by the Notary/Solicitor, before certifying the document:
1) A specific reference to the documentation behind its certification;
2) A declaration that the Power of Attorney has been signed in the presence of a UK Notary Public or Practising Solicitor, after being satisfied that the signatory ID is original;
3) In case of signing on behalf of a company, the certification must clearly state that the ‘Practising Solicitor’/‘Notary Public’ is satisfied that the signatory has the full authority and the capacity to sign of behalf of the company.
4) Power of Attorney that contains any kind of authorisation for the purpose of selling lands or properties located outside the borders of “The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan” or in contrary with the Jordanian public order and morals CANNOT be legalised;
