Price Increases for Notaries to Legalise Documents to be used in United Arab Emirates

Martin Astle, Notary at Astle Paterson confirmed “With immediate effect, the price that the Embassy for the United Arab Emirates charges for Legalising documents has increased to £37.50 for personal documents and £500.00 for commercial documents.”

Notaries are primarily concerned with the authentication and certification of signatures and documents for use abroad.

The procedural formalities for notarising documents vary depending on which Country the documents are intended to be used in.  Where a document is for use in the Middle East or South America, the document will need to be Notarised, with an Apostille and then Legalised by the Embassy of the Country concerned (United Arab Emirates and Dubai share this arrangement).

At Astle Paterson we have two Notaries, Martin Astle and Jean Paterson.  Should you need any documents to be notarised for use in abroad, we will arrange for the documents to be certified in line with the procedure required for the destination Country.  If required, we can arrange for any documents to be sent to the relevant Embassy for Legalisation.

Please contact our Notarial Department on 01283 531366 or by way of email at
