Authentication of St. Kitts & Nevis Documents
It is a requirement to have a stamp on the reverse of the original document stating that it is an original document.
For additional information on how to have your documents authenticated, please contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in St. Kitts, www.mofa.gov.kn
Certification of St. Kitts & Nevis Documents
The Consular Section of the London High Commission can certify copies of original St. Kitts and Nevis documents such as birth, marriage and death certificates and passports.
The St. Kitts and Nevis High Commission does not guarantee that Embassies and authorities in foreign counties will recognize a document authenticated by the High Commission. The High Commission therefore advises that the individual making the request verify acceptable methods of authentication with the receiving authority.
All requests for copies must be made in person. Please bring with you the documents to be certified.
