Legalisation of documents from Somalia for use in the Netherlands

It is currently not possible to have documents legalised in Somalia. The Dutch authorities will check and assess your document.

Documents from the embassy of Somalia in Brussels

Consular statements issued by the Somalian embassy in Brussels can be legalised by the Consular Service Centre (CDC) in The Hague.

After legalisation, the statement can be used in the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

It is then also fit for use in Aruba, CuraƧao, St. Maarten, Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius.

Attention: Please note: not all consular statements issued by the Somalian embassy in Brussels can be legalised by the CDC. Therefore, first send a scan of the document to info.consulair@minbuza.nl and ask in your email if legalisation by the CDC is possible.
