Legalisation of documents
Serbia has signed the treaty on The Convention abolishing the requirement of legalisation for foreign public document. This means that a designated central authority can issue an apostille on a public document. A document bearing an apostille does not require any further legalisation by the embassy. For further information about legalisation and apostille please see hereunder.
Both the Dutch authorities and the authorities of other countries need to be certain about the status of each other’s documents. Legalisation confirms that a document was issued by someone with the proper authority and that the signatures it bears are genuine. Some documents need to be signed by several different authorities in order to be legalised. This is called the legalisation chain.
