What Are Notarial/Legalisation services?
Do I need to make an appointment?
Do I need to come in to Australia House or can I send my documents in the mail?
Please note that this option only applies to documents that do not require you to sign in front of a consular official.
You do not need to attend in person to have your documents certified, an apostille attached or for a Certificate of no Impediment to be issued. We recommend sending documents by recorded or special delivery. We make every attempt to return your documents within 5 business days of receipt. Do not send items by Courier - they will be rejected.
Please send your original documents to the following address:-
Australian High Commission
Strand London WC2B 4LA
• A covering letter outlining the number of copies you require as well as instructions to certify documents
• A self addressed reply paid envelope - preferably recorded or special delivery
• Your daytime contact number and/or email address
• A completed credit/debit card authorisation payment slip (please note we do not accept bank cheques). For a credit/debit card authorisation payment slip please click here.
