Apostilles to prove your identity

An apostille may be required to prove your identity. If you are travelling overseas, applying for a visa, or looking for work outside of the UK then you may be requested to prove that you are a UK citizen. This may require the supply of one or several documents from the following list-

Certified copy of passport
Birth Certificate
Adoption certificate
National Identification Certificates
Criminal record checks

It must be stressed that this list is not exhaustive and that you should contact the country that you are travelling to for clarification of the documents required. This selection of documents is supplied for information only and it should not be taken as advice.
