Legalisation of documents from the Turks and Caicos Islands for use in the Netherlands

If you want to use a document from the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Netherlands, you must have it legalised by the local British authorities on Grand Turk.

Due to the corona virus, you cannot have foreign documents legalised at most embassies or consulates-general until further notice. Please check the contact page of the embassy or consulate-general to see if and from when it is possible to have your document legalised. Don't see a start date on the contact page? Then it is not yet possible. Do you only need to have your documents legalised by the local authorities? Then check with the local authorities if that is possible.

You can have various documents legalised, such as diplomas and certificates. The most common documents are extracts from civil status records:

  • an official copy of a death certificate

You can request these documents on the Turks and Caicos Islands government website.

  • a certificate of unmarried status
  • an official copy of a divorce certificate

Ask the local authorities where you can get these documents.
