1) You MUST arrange for the verification of your qualification at the Saudi Arabian Cultural Bureau before sending them to us. We can only handle submissions to the FCO and the Embassy and cannot answer any queries regarding your submission.
2) All documents being legalised for Saudi Arabia now require a copy of your passport along with the rest of your documents. Please make sure to include this when sending your documents to us.
This service allows you to legalise a UK-issued document for use within Saudi Arabia.

Degree certificates and other educational documents require a specific process for legalisation. You must pass the document(s) to the Saudi Arabian Cultural Bureau in London (SACB) BEFORE they can be sent to the FCO to be apostilled. They can then be readied for submission to the Saudi Arabian Embassy in London. The Cultural Bureau will attempt to make contact with the issuer of your educational document to validate it's authenticity. Vital Certificates can send your documents to the FCO and to the Saudi Embassy, but you must submit your document to the SACB yourself before bringing it to us.
Once you send your SACB-verified document to us, (along with the original copy of the document and a copy of your passport) we will have it certified by a solicitor and send it to the FCO on your behalf, before having it attested by the Saudi Embassy in London.
To speed up the time taken to legalise your qualification, you are advised to contact the registrar who issued the document to ask them to respond quickly to this request. The order will not go any further until this validation process has been completed and so it is in your best interests to contact them. Regrettably, due to the Data Protection Act, we are unable to contact your qualification provider on your behalf.
Due to the above process, the time taken to legalise an educational qualification will vary. It is not uncommon for this to take several months so please allow sufficient time to process your legalisation application. Once you have received the documents back from the SACB you can then send them to us for FCO and Saudi Embassy submission.
Please note: We are unable to assist with the SACB process and cannot answer any questions about your application with them. We can only fulfill the steps regarding the FCO and the Saudi Embassy.
