Legalisation of documents from Somalia for use in the Netherlands
Despite the improvements in Somalia’s political situation, it is currently not possible to have documents from Somalia legalised. The Dutch authorities will check and assess your document.
Due to the corona virus, the possibilities to have foreign documents legalised at an embassy or consulate-general are limited. Please check the online appointment system to see if it is possible to make an appointment. If no times are available, it is not yet possible. Do you only need to have your documents legalised by the local authorities? Then check with the local authorities if that is possible.
Assistance from the CDC in The Hague
The Consular Service Centre (CDC) cannot help you apply for documents or have documents legalised for you.
Documents from the embassy of Somalia in Brussels
Documents issued by the Somali embassy in Brussels can be legalised by the Consular Service Centre (CDC) in The Hague. After legalisation, it can be used in the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
