Document for use in Lebanon needs first to be legalised by way of FCO Apostille and then submitted to the Consulate of Lebanon for further attestation.
For commercial documents such as Certificates of Origin and Invoices further legalisation by the London and the Arab-British Chambers of Commerce may be required prior to submitting to the Lebanese Consulate for further attestation.
The consular fee is £54 per commercial document and between £11 (academic documents, Affidavit, Registry Certificates) to £36 (Wills, General Power of Attorney) per personal document, depending on the type of document and number os signatories.
£36 for general power of attorney and £18 for special power of attorney per signature plus extra fees (applied only if the amount of money is stated in the power of attorney, 1£ per 1000£)
If legalisation by the London and Arab-British Chamber of Commerce is required, additional fee of £50.22 per document applies.
Turnaround time is likely to be 3-4 working days
For certain commercial documents the Lebanese Consulate may charge a percentage of the sale price as a legalisation fee which may potentially make legalisation costly in given cases
Document must refer to Lebanon on its contents, and, if referring to any other country is likely to be rejected.
Bundled documents are accepted under one notarial certificate and one Apostille, however, in this case the consular fee is charged per each document within the bundle.
