LEGALISATION REQUIREMENT FOR Seychelles

Documents pertaining to land to be used in Seychelles do not need to be legalised if they are signed/authenticated by a UK notary public (s. 60(2)(a) of the Seychelles Land Registration Act 1967 (as amended)).

Other types of documents should be legalised by way of FCDO Apostille (s. 28 of the Seychelles Evidence Act 1882 (as amended)).

FEES

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

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).
