Notice on the Legalisation or Apostille of Documents

With the entry into force of the Apostille Convention for the Philippines on 14 May 2019, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) will issue an Apostille instead of an Authentication Certificate as proof of authentication of public documents for use abroad.

Documents with Apostille/authentication from the DFA do not need legalisation from the Danish Embassy and Consulates.

Legalization of Danish documents

When a Danish document is to be used by a Philippine authority, it is required that the original document has been legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Copenhagen. Please click Legalisation (Apostille) ( for more information.
