London Notary Public Practice M D Pryke Notary Public is pleased to announce that the Embassy of the Dominican Republic has informed this London Notarial practice that, with immediate effect, all British documents with an valid apostille obtained from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office will be received as valid in the Dominican Republic without any requirement to be further legalised by the Consular of the Dominican Republic Embassy in London. Notary Public clients should note that the documents will, however, be required to be translated into Spanish with the translation certified by the Dominican Republic Embassy at a cost of between £120 and £200 per document. Consequently the process for London Notary clients of London Notary Public Practice M D Pryke Notary Public has been made slightly more straight forward.
Commenting on the recent changes London Notary Matthew Pryke explained, “Any removal of additional requirements to legalise a document is likely to be well received by our London Notary clients. However as the document will still be required to be both legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and also translated and then certified by the Dominican Republic Embassy the process of producing documents to be received in the Dominican Republic is still somewhat more cumbersome than a number of other countries globally. Consequently we would continue to advise our London Notary Public clients to liaise with our London Notary Practice at the earliest opportunity to ensure deadlines can be meet and unnecessary delays avoided.”
