We specialise in the Urgent Legalisation and Authentication of Pet Export Health Certificates (EHC) where time is absolutely critical. Very often certificates must be authenticated within 72 hours or less.
Depending on the Home Embassy of the country involved, this can present a challenge but it’s not entirely impossible. Working with both you and the embassy, we will have your Pet Export Health Certificate legalised and authenticated as fast as possible.
Essentially, for the Export Health Certificate (EHC) to be used in certain countries, the Official Veterinarian (OV) who signed the Certificate must have their signature authenticated by the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) who are able to check and verify the signature of the OV against their records. Depending on which country you are exporting the animals to, further legalisation maybe required by the Home Embassy of that country in London.
If you haven’t yet arranged your EHC, then you may wish to read the guidance from the Government | Animal & Plant Health Agency.
