Apostille Countries

The legalisation convention is the convention abolishing the requirement of legalisation for foreign public documents, also known as the Apostille Convention (5 October 1961). This convention does not completely abolish legalisation but shortens the chain so that only a single action is required, the addition of an apostille. A document bearing an apostille does not require any further legalisation by the embassy or consulate of the country in which it is to be used.

postille endorsements
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.

Previously, a document had to go through three or four legalisations by various authorities, today in most cases a single legalisation (a special Apostille stamp) from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is sufficient.

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 (see the list of Apostille countries on the right).

Legalisation of non-public documents
Documents which are issued by private individuals or private companies, such as powers of attorney, contracts and declarations, must be legalised by a Danish authority, such as a Notary Public or a Chamber of Commerce, prior to legalisation with an Apostille by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Certain export documents are not covered by the Apostille Convention
According to the Apostille Convention, documents which are directly related to export activities, such as certificates of origin, product lists, invoices, health certificates and similar, cannot be endorsed with an Apostille.

Therefore these documents continue to be legalised with the usual stamp of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and at the relevant Embassy
