If you’re sending a document outside the UK, a notary’s signature and seal show that responsible legal officer has dealt with it. Sometimes, the country receiving a document will ask for proof that the notary is qualified. The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office can provide this proof by attaching what is known as an apostille certificate.
