From today 06 April 2011 the fees of the Foreign and Commonweath (FCO) increase. The standard fee is now £30.00 (from £28.80) and the expedition fee is £75.00 (from £71.00).
There is a new standard form which must be completed and submitted also.
The FCO have also contracted with FedEx and will no longer use the Royal Mail Special Delivery service unless a prepaid Special Delivery Envelope is submitted.
As ever, please contact me if you need an Apostille stamp on your document and I can explain the new procedures in more detail
