Legalisation of documents from Somalia for use in the Netherlands

Despite the improvements in Somalia’s political situation, it is currently not possible to have documents from Somalia legalised. The Dutch authorities will check and assess your document.

Assistance from the CDC in The Hague

­The Consular Service Centre (CDC) cannot help you apply for documents or have documents legalised for you.

Documents from the embassy of Somalia in Brussels

Documents issued by the Somali embassy in Brussels can be legalised by the Consular Service Centre (CDC) in The Hague. After legalisation, you can use your document in the Netherlands.
