At times, you might need to have your official documents authenticated for legal use outside of the Netherlands. If the country you intend to use your documents in is not a member country of the Apostille Convention (also known as the Hague Convention), your documents will have to go through the Dutch Embassy Attestations process. This means that if you want to use your Dutch degree for official purposes in a country like China, for example, it has to be verified and authenticated by the Chinese Embassy.
How do Dutch Embassy Attestations work?
It is important to keep in mind that your documents will have to be apostilled or authenticated by the High Court before they can be sent in for attestation. Once the authentication process is complete, your documents are sent over to the embassy in question for attestation.
The fees and processing times for Dutch Embassy Attestations vary greatly depending on a range of factors including currency fluctuations and the current demand. It is wise to remember that these fees can sometimes be very high, so you should monetarily prepare yourself for the process before starting.
Por qué puede necesitar que se autentiquen sus documentos
Cuando se autentica un documento, se está validando como genuino, lo cual puede contribuir a simplificar el proceso de utilización de sus documentos en el exterior. Una autenticación es una forma de certificación que es legalmente necesaria para emprendimientos a través de las fronteras que involucren un crecimiento personal o profesional, incluyendo:
- Solicitudes de visas o pasaportes
- Solicitar un proceso de emigración o cambiar su condición laboral
- Verificación de la World Education Services (WES) y de la International Qualification Assessment (IQAS)
Dutch Embassy Attestations is a complex process that requires careful attention to details that demands expertise and a thorough understanding of all steps followed in the procedure. Undertaking to do this on your own can lead to unnecessary delays and expenses.
