Legalisation of documents

A legalisation is a certification that a signature on a document is genuine. A legalisation is no evidence that the contents of the document are correct.

The Embassy can legalize Estonian documents for use in Denmark if the document has first been legalized by the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Certain types of documents can be endorsed with an Apostille; these documents are immediately useable in Denmark as both Estonia and Denmark are parties to the Apostille Convention.

Further information concerning legalisation, Apostille and verification is available on the homepage of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs as well as the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
