How it works

If you are planning to work or study outside the Netherlands, you may need to have your Dutch diploma legalised. Legalisation makes a diploma suitable for use in another country. It shows that your diploma is authentic and has been issued by a competent authority. You can have your diploma legalised by registered mail or you can visit our service desk in Groningen.

Diploma description

A diploma description contains information about a specific form of Dutch secondary education. It contains no information about the content of the subjects in which you took your exams.

Teaching qualification

If you have a Dutch diploma and you want to know if you have a teaching qualification, please send an e-mail to ks.dw@duo.nl.

Costs

The different options come with different costs. De table below allows you to compare the fees.

Document or service Fee
Diploma legalisation € 6*
Standard diploma description Free

* Depending on the country where you want to use your document, you need to continue the legalisation process through a district court or through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
