Driving License

Letter of Invitation
Medical Report/Fit to Work
Passport
Sick Note (from a Doctor)
Test Results (Medical)
Utility Bill



All documents, or copies, in the list above must be authenticated by a solicitor or notary public before they can be legalised with an apostille, except:

  • Driving Licenses/Passports: only certified copies (by a solicitor or notary public) of these documents can be legalised; the original documents cannot.

  • Medical reports, certificate of fitness to work and medical test results: originals must be signed by a doctor registered with the General Medical Council. If your document has been signed by another doctor or another member of staff, on behalf of your named doctor, the document will not be legalised.

Important Note - Requirements for authentication by solicitor/notary public

Photocopies of these documents can be legalised, as long as they are certified as a 'true copy' by a solicitor or notary public.

The solicitor or notary public must:

  • state what they are certifying (true copy, original document, witness signature etc)
  • use their own personal signature, not the company name
  • date the certification
  • state their company address

In addition, when a document is authenticated by a notary public from England, Northern Ireland or Wales, the notary public must affix their notarial seal and apply their embossed seal.

Please note that some authorities abroad will not accept copies of certain documents, even though they can be legalised here. If you want to make sure a copy will be accepted, contact the foreign authority concerned.
