Apostille on the marriage certificate: is it needed?

The Danish Marriage Certificate is legally recognised worldwide, but if you plan to use it for administrative or immigration purposes, it may need to be legalised by for example, an apostille.

The document is legally valid in Denmark, but laws vary from country to country. Apostille legalisation is a verification of authenticity by the Ministry of Foreign affairs, that ensures the marriage certificate is legally recognised internationally in your country of residence or other.

In the past, especially for other EU countries, legalizations did not seem as crucial. However, it appears that laws are becoming stricter, and administrative offices worldwide are exercising greater caution in accepting documents.

In this regard, we always recommend our clients to review what kind of legalisation the administrative instance need.

How does the delivery system for my marriage certificate work?

Typically, town halls use regular untracked mail for sending certificates.
However, with our legalization service, we ensure a secure return by utilizing tracked service.
If you decide to obtain the certificate directly from the City Hall, you can opt for our Apostille Legalisation Service, and we guarantee a fully legalised document and safe delivery.
