Apostilles (endorsement stamps) and legalisation

Translated documents are often required to have an apostille or a form of legalisation before they can be used. In addition to our translation services, we also offer free advice concerning the required apostille(s) and legalisation(s) of your documents.

For a small fee, we can arrange for your documents to be supplied with the proper apostilles and/or legalisations and eliminate this hassle for you. The documents will then be ready for use when you receive them from us and it won’t be necessary for you to visit the official agencies in question. In many cases this involves a court of law but in certain cases it may involve legalisation by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in The Hague.

Legalising a signature at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in The Hague costs €10,- per document. If we arrange this legalisation for you, we charge an additional €50,- regardless of the number of documents. Apostilles (or endorsement stamps) obtained from the court cost €20,-. If we arrange this apostille for you, we charge an additional €50,- regardless of the number of documents.
