Saudi Arabia is a member of the Hague Convention of 1961 and the FCDO Apostille only should suffice for documents to be used in Saudi Arabia.
The FCDO Apostille fee is £40 for standard service, £100 for premium service or £35 for e-Apostille service.
The London and Arab Chambers fee is £56.40 per commercial document.
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 turnaround time for the London and Arab Chambers attestation only is 5 working days.
Commercial documents may still require attestation by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) and the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce (ABCC), once the FCDO Apostille is obtained before submitting to the local authorities in Saudi Arabia. This is to be confirmed by the local requesting party as it may vary depending on the purposes of use in Saudi Arabia.
UK educational documents no longer require the Saudi Arabian Consulate legalisation, but may still require the attestation by the Saudi Arabian Cultural Attaché before being certified by a UK solicitor or notary public and obtaining the FCDO Apostille.
The attestation process by the Saudi Arabian Cultural Attaché is done electronically by the document holder via https://attestation.uksacb.org/
