LEGALISATION REQUIREMENT FOR Maldives Islands

Documents for use in the Republic of Maldives do not usually require legalisation by the U.K. Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) or/and the High Commission of the Republic of Maldives.

Please confirm the requirements with the local instructing party in Maldives as FCDO Apostille legalisation may be required in some cases.

FEES

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

PROCESSING TIME

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.

IMPORTANT NOTES

**Documents certified by a UK Notary Public should be sufficient to be accepted by the local authorities in Maldives.

If FCDO Apostille is required, 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).
