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.
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.
If you have a Dutch diploma and you want to know if you have a teaching qualification, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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|
|Extensive diploma description||€ 57|
* 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.
