Notary Public Fees

How much does a Notary Public cost?

We charge a minimum standard rate of £60 per notarial act for simple matters such as notarising a passport or one page document. More complicated matters will require higher fees. If possible we will quote a fixed fee before commencing work. However, for particularly complicated matters we may charge according to a fee structure. Otherwise fees are usually decided by the time spent on a matter at an hourly rate of £180. Where a document requires legalisation via the Foreign and Commonwealth Office there will be a further fee of £36 charged per document, including postage within the UK. For addresses in Europe the total Apostille fee will be £44.50 including postage, for the rest of the world we charge £55 including postage. The FCO offer a premium 24 hour Apostille Certificate service in London. This is charged at an additional £75 per document and does not include our fees. These prices are set by the government.

Embassy and Consulate Legalisation

Some countries require their Consulate or Embassy to legalise documents as well as or instead of the FCO. This varies from country to country, please contact us for matters regarding this. We do not charge VAT.
