Legalisation of Bangladeshi documents

 

When Bangladeshi documents are to be used for any official purpose in the Netherlands they have to be legalised by the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Dhaka. The documents should be in the English language and should be drawn up in accordance to Bangladesh laws and regulations. Only correct documents attested by the competent Authority of the Bangladesh Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be accepted for legalisation.

 

The legalisation fee will have to be paid when the document is submitted for legalisation at the embassy.
