Powers of attorney, Letters of verification, etc. 

Privately issued documents, such as powers of attorney, letters of no objection, letters of verification, etc. must be notarised by a city court prior to legalisation.

The Notary witnesses and attests your signature. Remember you must bring ID in the form of passport or driver's license.

There should be a Danish or English version of the document if the document is in a third language. It is possible to compile the Danish/English version with the third language version in the same document, for example as double columns.

Please note that we do not legalise documents issued and notarized in other countries (see this website). We can only legalise documents issued and notarized in Denmark. Documents issued in other countries must be legalised in the country in question by the competent authority (typically the country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs).

Based on an individual assessment of the document, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reserves the right to reject legalization of a notarized power of attorneys if it cannot be ascertained that the document at hand is Danish or there is other reasons to question whether the document falls within the scope of the Apostille Convention.
