Diploma legalisation at our service desk

Working or studying abroad

Your Dutch diploma is not automatically valid abroad. If you are planning to work or study outside the Netherlands, you may need to have your educational documents (diploma, mark list, etc.) legalised. You can arrange this at our service desk in Groningen. You don’t have to do so in person; a family member or friend can have your documents legalised for you.

Conditions

  • Your document must be original, complete and approved by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW).
  • Your document must be signed by a representative of your school or university.
  • Your document must be printed on the school or university's headed paper.

How to apply

Opening hours

Our service desk is open Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 16:00, except on December 25 and December 26 2017.

Fee

Legalisation costs € 6 per document. You can pay by PIN or in cash. The District Court charges € 20 per document.

Your document is not available in Mijn DUO

If your document is not available in Mijn DUO, please send us a copy of your document by email on ks.dw@duo.nl. We may still be able to legalise your document. You can also call us first on +31 50 599 80 36.

Legalisation at fairs

Instead of coming to Groningen, you can also have your document legalised at one of the fairs listed below. After legalisation at the fair, you either go to a District Court (not necessarily the one in Groningen) or to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to finalise the legalisation. Details will be given at the fair, if necessary.

Contact

Please contact the Diploma recognition and Legalisation department if you have any questions. You can call us from 09.00 to 12.00 a.m. on + 31 50 599 80 36 or send an email to ks.dw@duo.nl.
