Legalisation of Danish documents

The Legalisation Office is open for personal attendance all weekdays from 9-12. Tuesday and Thursday also from 13.30-15.30.

You can find the webshop here.

Once you have made a purchase in the webshop, you have the following options:

  1. Personally attend The Legalisation office during the opening hours and hand in the original document. The document will be legalised while you wait.
  2. Send the 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 working days, counting from the day we receive the document. 

Please note: Physical documents can only be legalised if they contain a physical and manual signature by an official Danish authority or a digital signature. We only accept original documents containing the mentioned types of signatures. A scanned specimen or a copy will not be accepted.  

Digitally signed documents need to be uploaded directly to our webshop in connection with the purchase or as an alternative sent to our secure email address bvpsik@um.dk. If you send it by mail, it is important that the document is forwarded directly from your e-boks.

In some cases, documents are sent electronically but without a digital signature. Please be aware of this and remember to request the document with a digital signature from the relevant authority.

In order to verify whether your document is digitally signed or not, please open the concerned document via your pdf-reader, if a blue bar appears on the top part of the document, it means that the document contains a digital signature.
