3. How long it takes for attestation?

If the document is submitted fulfilling all the procedures, and the applicant comes in-person it will be on the same day depending upon the workload. If it is sent by post, we will dispatch it back within three working days and the exact day of delivery depends upon the courier.

However, if further verification is required, it may take up to two weeks or often even longer.

4. Shall I pay in cash? Or I can transfer the amount by bank? When can I make bank transfer?

Both cash payment and bank transfer will be accepted. Please note that only local currency (Danish Kroner) will be accepted. If you are sending the money from outside Denmark, you have to add bank commission on top of the attestation fee(normally 50 DKK). Please ask your bank for the transfer commission.

We recommend you to transfer the amount only when the Embassy staff asks you to do so. This is because, once you pay the amount, we cannot refund the amount from here. We must write to the Government of Nepal, Ministry of Finance for the refund, that will take long and you have to fulfil certain conditions to be eligible for refund. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours to transfer the amount from the country other than from Denmark.

5. Can I pay the amount in other currency?

No, you cannot pay the amount in any other currency except Danish Kroner.

6. If I send the document by post who pays for the postal charge? How to pay it?

If you are sending the documents by post you have to pay postal charge for both ways. You can either send return envelope and ask the courier to pick it up from the Embassy or send the postal charge to the Embassy so that the Embassy can send it back it to you. It costs DKK 99 to send within Denmark and 132 to other 7 countries (Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) which you can send together with the attestation charge.
