What is the difference between Apostille and consular legalisation?

Apostille and consular legalisation are two types of legalisation and depending on a specific case and purpose, your Danish documents will either have to be apostilled or consular legalised. If you are in doubt, please contact us and we will advise you accordingly.

Apostille is a stamp affixed on a separate sheet to Danish documents in proof of authenticity of the signature and the capacity of the official who has signed the original document. Apostille is valid in the countries (including Denmark) that have signed the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 in order to simply the legalisation of documents.

For all other cases, you would be required to obtain consular legalisation, meaning your Danish documents would have to be legalised by a consulate in Denmark of the country you will be submitting them to. If you are not in Denmark, we can take care of the legalisation procedures on your behalf.

What is the Apostille and consular legalisation procedure of Danish documents in Denmark?

Apostille in Denmark is provided by the legalisation office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Prior to that your document(s) will have to be confirmed by a Danish notary public or the Danish Chamber of Commerce (Dansk Erhverv) and all documents on all these occasions have to be submitted in person by you or a person who will be doing it on your behalf, meaning us at DocsBase.

The same applies to consular legalisation, which entails bringing your original document to a consulate and having it legalised by a consulate official. This we can also take care of on your behalf.

Please note that both of these legalisation procedures involve confirmation of the authenticity of the signature and the capacity of the official only, not the contents of the document or the accuracy of the translation.

What Danish documents are usually apostilled and legalised?

The most common Danish documents that we apostille or consular legalise for our clients include, but are not limited to personal documents (birth certificates, marriage certificates, adoption related documents – if you are joining your spouse abroad or adopting a child from outside the EU, for example), academic and school documents (parchments, transcripts of results – if you are continuing your studies outside Denmark), financial and company documents (financial statements, audit reports or tax declarations – if you are opening a business abroad, for example).
