Attesting Netherlands Documents for the UAE

Need to attest your documents for the Netherlands? We can help!

Attesting a Netherlands document can be a difficult procedure, purely because of the number of steps required from start to finish, and the fact that different documents have different legalisation procedures. The most common Netherlands documents requiring legalisation are educational documents, but we can legalise any officially issued Netherlands Certificate if required. The general process for attesting a document from the Netherlands is as below.

How It Works

To attest your Netherlands Documents, we will require both the original certificate and a copy of your passport. 

  • Send us your documents or have them collected by our specially allocated couriers.
  • We'll have them sent safely to the Netherlands, where five things will happen:
  1. Your document will need to be translated into English by a sworn translator, and subsequently notarised.  
  2. Then, your document will be need to be legalised at your local District Court.
  3. Thirdly, your document will be sent to the Ministry of Justice, where a Certificate of Legalisation will be added to the front page.
  4. Fourth, the document will be further legalised at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Netherlands.
  5. Finally, your document with need to sent to the UAE Embassy in The Hague, where the legalisation process will end.
  • Your document will be returned to the UAE and attested at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), before being sent back to you (or anywhere else you might need), safe and sound.

The procedure above is standard for all documents being legalised in Netherlands for the UAE. Different documents may require additional procedures however. For example, Educational Documents will need to be sent to the Ministry of Education first, before the rest of attestation process can take place.
