Apostille Information in Denmark 


From 1 January 2007 it has become easier to have your documents legalised. On 1 January 2007 Denmark acceded to the Hague Apostille Convention of 5 October 1961. This means that it has become simpler for citizens and companies to have public documents legalised for use abroad.

When a document has been endorsed with an Apostille, it is in most cases no longer necessary to have another legalisation at the Embassy of the country in question.

However, Embassy legalisation can only be dispensed with if the document is to be used in a country which is a party to the Apostille Convention. Around 100 countries have signed up, including all the EU countries. 

In Denmark, the designated Competent Authority to issue an apostille is The Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
