Diploma legalization at our Service Desk

Working or studying abroad

If you are going to work or study outside the Netherlands, you will usually need a legalized educational document (diploma, list of marks, etc.). You can arrange this at our Service Desk, in Groningen. You can also ask a family member or friend to have them legalized.

What are the rules?

  • 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 original headed paper of the institution.

What do you have to do?

Opening hours

Our service desk is open Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 16:00. Except on the following dates: April 17, April 27, April 28, May 5, May 25 May 26, June 5, December 25 and December 26 2017. On these days we are closed.

Your document is not available in Mijn DUO

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

Fee

Legalization costs € 6 per document. You can pay this amount by PIN or in cash. The District Court also charges a fee - € 20 per document.

Legalization at fairs

Instead of coming to Groningen it is also possible to legalize your document at one of the fairs listed below. After legalization at the fair you go either to the District Court (not necessarily in Groningen) or to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to make the legalization definitive. Details will be given at the fair, if necessary.

Contact

Please contact the 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.
