General Information

All documents (including academic qualifications) presented to the Yemen Embassy’s Consulate Section for Legalisation must first be certified by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) or other relevant local authority (such as the Governors’ Offices of Jersey, Guernsey & Isle of Man, the Irish Ministry for Foreign Affairs or the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Iceland.

Documents from British Overseas Territories will require attestation by the Government of the territory in question prior to submission to the FCO for certification.

Please note that the Yemen Embassy is not able to legalize foreign documents. All submitted documents have to be attested or apostilled separately.

The FCO will accept for certification original documents which have been signed by:

  • the Registrar of Companies

  • the Registrar of Births, Marriages & Deaths

Other UK documents submitted to the FCO will first need to be either authenticated by a solicitor or notarized by a Notary Public. For more information on the Legalisation by the FCO, please visit Legalisation Office (FCO).

Documents from Yemen will need to be endorsed by the Yemen Ministry of Foreign Affairs before legalisation by Yemen Embassy in London.

​Power of Attorney and similar legally binding documents should be original and signed in the presence of a Notary Public prior to the attestation.
