Frequently asked questions.

1. Must I personally come to the Embassy? Why?

Yes, you (the principal) must come personally at the Embassy. The verifying official has to sign the document stating that the signatory has signed the document in front of him/her. This can only be ensured when the official sees the document signed by the right person.

2. Must I take prior appointment? What happens if I appear without appointment?

As per the existing rule, only the head of the Embassy – Ambassador or Charge d’Affaires a.i. – are authorized to sign the documents. If the signing official is occupied in other work, or is in leave or away from the Embassy, s/he will not be able to sign the document. To ensure his/her availability we recommend to take appointment.

3. If I am living outside Denmark, can I take appointment?

Yes, if you are living in Denmark and other 7 accredited countries (Norway, Finland, Sweden, Iceland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia), you can take appointment for the attestation.

4. I am living outside Denmark, is there any alternative than me coming to the Embassy?

Generally, you have to come in-person to the Embassy, however if the Ambassador or the Charge d’Affairs a. i. happens to come to your country, s/he can verify the document there. You can ask the Embassy if there is such schedule.

5. If the attested PoA is lost/stolen/damaged or otherwise some changes are required what should I do?

By whatever the reasons thereof, if you have to make another copy of the PoA, you must follow all the procedure as before and you have to pay the fee as well. Therefore, we suggest you to properly prepare the documents before producing at the Embassy and keep them safe after attestation.
