Schmidt & Schmidt offers the consular legalization of documents from Greenland.
Greenland is an autonomous part of the Kingdom of Denmark, which is a member of the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. However, the a special declaration issued by the Danish authorities excludes Greenland from the agreement on the simplified legalization of foreign public documents. Documents in Greenland need to undergo the consular legalization in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, where the signature and the seal on the foreign document are authenticated, to be recognized for use abroad. The document is then finally legalized by the respective embassy of the document's state of destination.
The following documents can be legalized:
- Extracts from the commercial register
- Certificates of civil status (certificates of birth, death, marriage and divorce)
- Education documents (school reports, certificates, diplomas)
- Court decisions
- Notarially certified copies of documents
- Notarially certified translations
- Further notarial documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
