OK, so you have landed your dream job in China, congratulations!
You have went through numerous administrative and bureaucratic processes and have now been told you need your qualifications and police clearance paperwork “notarised” and “legalised” with the Chinese Embassy in London.
You begin to shudder. You have never heard of any of this before. What does all that mean?
Don’t worry. We are here to help you.
We know that most people have never heard of a “Notary” or “Legalisation”.
We are here to make things simple for you, take the pain out of the process and, most importantly, minimise the cost to you.
We Notarise and Legalise your Education and Police checks so that they are acceptable for the Chinese Visa Process. We do this every day of the week. You can trust us to get it right.
We know that getting things legalised for use in China can get expensive that is why we have come up with a 10-step process which slashes costs and gets the correct result for you every time.
For Education Documents
£300 including VAT and all Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Apostille and Chinese Embassy fees.
For Education Documents and Police Clearance Certificates
£345 including VAT and all Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Apostille and Chinese Embassy fees. This is because many institutions in China require that the Police Clearance Certificate is legalised independently of Education Certificates.
There are no hidden fees.
How Does it Work?

- We complete the application for Apostille and arrange for the Notarial Certificate to be taken to the United Kingdom Foreign & Commonwealth Office for them to apply an Apostille to our Notarial Certificate. (An Apostille is the UK Government verifying that we are UK Notaries)
- The Notarial Certificate with Apostille is returned to us, with the Apostille affixed
