Converting your foreign document into a Dutch document will make things easier in the future if you ever need an official copy of a document. You will simply be able to request an official copy online from the municipality of The Hague. This will save you having to request one from abroad.
Easy but not mandatory
Converting your foreign document is not mandatory. It is useful if you need an official copy or extract in the future. For example, if a civil-law notary or a government authority requests this, or if you are getting married or divorced. You can always request the copy or extract online from the municipality of The Hague. This saves you time and money, because you do not have to request the copy in the country where it comes from.
Converting a foreign document
Do you have a foreign birth certificate, marriage certificate, certificate of registered partnership, death certificate or divorce or termination of registered partnership documents? Then you can ask the municipality of The Hague to convert them into Dutch documents.
