UK Process

The legalisation of UK documents will include confirmation that the original document is genuine by a solicitor (as necessary) Apostillisation by the FCO, and legalisation by the Chinese Embassy.

Once we have legalised documents, digital copies will be emailed to yourself/employer and originals and legalised copies couriered either to China or to a UK address upon your instruction.

From receiving  your documents our standard service will take 8-10 working days, with our express service 3-4 working days. These service time do not include courier times, which are next day to the UK and 2 working days to China.


UK Standard Service:

The estimated time for this is 8-10 days, this may take longer in peak times due to increased volume in the government departments.


UK Express Service:

Our express service will take 3-4 working days.

British Criminal Background reports:

There are currently several different police reports offered in the UK. All of these options have been used by our applicants in the past to successfully get visas.

Please however check with your employer to see which of these they would require.



ACRO certificates can be mailed directly to our UK offices which speeds up the turn around time.

ACRO is currently the most common choice and has a 10 working day turn around time for the standard service and for the express services is completed in 2 working days (not including receipt and dispatch). From the date of  your express application with ACRO for our express service we will complete the legalisation process for your ACRO police check in 8-10 working days.

ACRO applications must be made directly by the applicant


Other Police Checks

Other available police certificates are ICPC, DBS and Basic Disclosure for Scotland. All these police certificates can be legalised by us for use in China. Please check with your employer as to which documents they require for your application.
