Processing Options

  • Certification (London Chamber and Arab Chamber stamping only). Documents are verified by the LCCI first and then sent to ABCC for certification. This process can take up to two working days
  • Legalisation (London Chamber, Arab Chamber and Arab League Embassy). Documents are verified by the LCCI first and then sent to ABCC. Once certified by the ABCC, the documents are then forwarded to the embassy for legalisation. This process can take between 5 and 15 working days depending on the embassy. Legalisation is mandatory for Kuwait, Qatar and UAE
  • Express: LCCI will process the document while you wait. The applicant then takes the document to the Arab Chamber in person where it is certified immediately. The applicant can then proceed to the relevant Embassy for legalization (if required). The express service is NOT available for Kuwait, Qatar and UAE (documents for these countries must be left with the LCCI and we will organize legalisation)
  • Notarisation by Notary Public
  • Foreign and Commonwealth Office apostille.
