Often times, you will be required to legalise your documents or have them authenticated, for official use in and outside of the Netherlands. The process of document authentication is observed by international governments and requires that Dutch documents have to be legalised for use abroad. Depending on the document’s intended use and which country it will be used in, there might be a few different legalisation requirements that your documents will have to go through.
Document Legalisation Services Offered for the Netherlands
Apostille: Apostilles are stamps which ensure the authenticity of official documents. Apostilles are issued by the district court in order to verify that documents are genuine and comply with the laws of the Apostille Convention. Learn more about apostilles here.
Certificate of Conduct: Dutch nationals that wish to apply for an immigration process or even a visa abroad will be required to produce a valid Police Clearance Certificate or Certificate of Conduct (VOG). Learn more about how we can help you obtain your certificate by following this link.
Embassy Attestations: Whenever documents have to be authenticated for use in another country and that country does not belong to the Apostille Convention, you will be required to submit your documents for Embassy Attestation services.
