Legalisation (Apostille)

You can get certain official Antiguan and Barbudan documents ‘legalised’ by asking the High Commission to confirm that the signature, stamp or seal is from a public official of Antigua and Barbuda.

You might need to do this if an official in another country has asked you to provide an Antigua and Barbuda document and they’ve said it must be legalised.

The High Commission will check the document, including whether the signature, stamp or seal is genuine. They’ll legalise the document by attaching a stamped official certificate (an ‘apostille’) to it.

You can get certain official British documents ‘legalised’ by asking the High Commission to perform this service on your behalf. You may need to do this if you are applying for your Antigua and Barbuda Passport.

Please be advised that only Duplicate Original Marriage Certificates can be apostiled. If you do not have this you can obtain one from here.
