The embassy can legalise a signature confirming that the signature of the signer on a document is genuine. An example is signature legalisation on a power of attorney, a proxy/ giver grants another person, the authorized representative, the authority to perform legal acts in his or her name. This mainly concerns powers of attorney in connection with the settlement of an inheritance or purchase or sale of movable or immovable property in the Netherlands. Another example is signature legalisation on a declaration of consent for a Dutch passport application for a minor.
The embassy can only legalize the signature of persons with Dutch nationality. Signature legalization is not allowed if it concerns a will. Nor can the embassy legalize a signature on a notarized power of attorney or a private power of attorney to provide a mortgage.
