Legalisation of documents

All the official documents issued by a UK authority must be legalised to take effect in San Marino.

The documents must have an Apostille stamp, which can be obtained by: 

Legalization Office – Foreign, Development and Commonwealth Office 
P.O.Box 6255 – Milton Keynes MK10 1XX 
Tel.: 03700 00 22 44 
Web address: www.gov.uk/get-document-legalised 
email: legalisationEnquiries@fco.gov.uk

 As of 15 December 2021, the United Kingdom has begun issuing e-Apostilles, with the following conditions:

1. An e-Apostille may be issued on all eligible public documents, as part of an initial pilot project.

2. e-Apostilles will be issued by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office as the Competent Authority for the United Kingdom.

3. All Apostilles issued by the United Kingdom may be verified in the e-Register, available at: https://www.gov.uk/verify-apostille or by following the instructions provided on the document.

For more information on the e-Apostille pilot project in the United Kingdom, please get in touch with LegalisationEApostillePilot@fcdo.gov.uk.

After legalising the documents they need to be translated into Italian by a certified translator and notarized.

Those who need to translate documents from Italian into English will need to contact a professional translator from the Yellow Pages, on the internet, or alternatively, please contact one of the translators in the list prepared by the General Consulate of Italy in London.

Citizens need to mail the original documents (after having them legalised & translated in Italian) to the postal address of the Consulate of San Marino in London for further processing: 

Consulate of the Republic of San Marino
Baird House,
15-17 Saint Cross Street
EC1N 8UW – United Kingdom

The cost of legalising the documents from the Honorary Consulate is free of charge for San Marino citizens.
