Power of attorneys, Letters of verifications, etc. 

Privately issued documents, such as Power of attorneys, 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. You can read more here.

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).

How do I get the Apostille/legalisation?

Once you have provided the above, you must order and pay for the Apostille/legalisation as well as any return postage in our webshop.

You can find a guide to the webshop here.

 

Once you have made your purchase, you must proceed with one of the following: 

  • Personally attend the Legalisation Office during the opening hours and hand in/pick up the original document. The document will be legalised while you wait.
  • Send the original document by mail. Please remember to enclose the receipt from the webshop also including the additional fee to cover the postage. The processing time for documents received by mail is up to 5 business days, counting from the day we receive the document.
