Legalisation

Legalisation includes verification of copies and apostille endorsements.

Verification of copies 

A verification is typically used as proof that a photocopy is a true copy of the original document. It may be a copy of a passport or birth certificate or other official documents. Verification does not have anything to do with the contents of a document; it merely confirms that it is a true copy. Verifications are carried out by the Danish Embassy and the person, whose document has to be verified, must attend in person.  

Apostille endorsements 

On 1 January 2007, Denmark acceded to the Hague Apostille Convention of 5th October 1961. When a document has been endorsed with an Apostille, it is in most cases no longer necessary to have another legalisation done by the Embassy.

However, Embassy legalisation is still required, if the document is to be used in a country, which has not acceded to the Apostille Convention Apostille Countries.

Further information about the Apostille is available on the website of the Danish Ministry for Foreign Affairs: www.um.dk.

Please contact the Consular Section of the Danish Embassy for legalisation of documents. The fee for legalizaiton service can be found in the consular fee section of this website.
