Dutch Diploma Legalization
You have graduated from the Dutch educational institution and you are planning to go for work or study outside the Netherlands, in this case you will usually need to prove the legal status of your diploma first. Unfortunately, your Dutch diploma is not automatically valid abroad. That is why in order to make it valid it is necessary to legalize Dutch Diploma or other educational document such as grade list, supplement, educational statement in order to be able to use it abroad. The legalization can only be done in the country you achieved your diploma or certificate.
The main steps of legalizing Dutch diploma for use abroad are as follows:
- Legalization at Education Executive Agency (DUO) of the Ministry of Education; and
- Legalization at the court* or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs**; and
- Legalization at the Embassy/Consulate of the country concerned**.
*Legalization is necessary for countries which are contracting parties to the Apostille Convention.
** Legalization at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Embassies/Consulates is necessary only for countries which are not contracting parties to the Apostille Convention.
Our team would be glad to assist you with any of the above listed legalization steps in order to legalize your Dutch diploma for use abroad.
