Legalisation (Apostille)

To get a document legalized you have to pay for an apostille in our webshop: https://dys.um.dk/Shop/purchase. The fee for one apostille is DKK 200.

When you have made a purchase you can either:

  1. Show up at our office in the opening hours with the document and we will legalize it  while you wait.
  2. Send us the original document by post and attach the receipt from the webshop (remember postage fee).

Processing time for documents sent by post is 3-5 working days from when we receive the document at our office. After legalization we will send the document to your address by post.

Please note:
In order to legalize a document it has to be signed by an official Danish authority with a physical signature or contain a digital signature.

Digital signatures
A document received digitally does not necessarily mean that it contains a digital signature.  Criminal records and documents issued by the Danish Business Authority or the Ministry of Church Affairs can be issued with a digital signature.

You can check if a document contains a digital signature by opening the document as a PDF-file. If a blue box appears in the top of the document it contains a digital signature, and then you can upload it directly from e-Boks to our webshop.

On these pages you can find information regarding legalisation of Danish documents and foreign documents.
