Authenticate Degree, TEFL
and Criminal Record Checks

We are experts in Authenticating UK documents for China

When it comes to issuing work Visas,  the majority of Chinese provinces require that certain documents are Authenticated. 

We are UK Notaries and can Authenticate the following documents:

  • Degree Certificates
  • "No Criminal Record" Background Checks
  • TEFL Certificates

We Authenticate documents for use in China every day by Notarising and Legalising Degree, TEFL and Police Clearance checks so that they are acceptable for the Chinese Visa Process.       

This process involves Notarisation as well as Legalisation with the United Kingdom Foreign & Commonwealth Office (Apostille) and the Chinese Consulate in London.

What's the Attestation Process?

A view in to how we handle things for you


Notaries are internationally recognised, independent and regulated lawyers who verify facts and documents for use overseas.   

The Notary will take a copy of your original document, put their certification that it is a true copy, sign it and seal it.


After the Notary has signed and sealed the documents,   we send one of our team to the United Kingdom Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) for them to apply an Apostille.

An Apostille is the UK Government verifying that we are UK Notaries and that UK Notaries have authority to authenticate degrees.

Chinese Consulate

We then complete the process by taking the documents to the Chinese Embassy in London.  

The Chinese Embassy verify the authenticity of the UK Apostille.

We collect the authenticated documents with the Chinese Embassy stamp and return everything to you enabling you to get on with your Chinese 'Z' Visa application.
