As of 16 February 2019 public documents, like birth and marriage certificates, from another European Union Member State can be used in the Netherlands without an Apostille. In case a multilingual standard form is submitted with the public document, even a certified translation of this document is no longer required. This change is based on the European Regulation (EU) 2016/1191. In Article 2.1 of the Regulation is listed which public documents fall under this new regulation.
The new Regulation applies to all Member States of the EU, plus the following territories: the Azores, the Canary Islands, French Guiana, Gibraltar, Guadeloupe, Madeira, Martinique, Mayotte, Réunion and Saint Martin (the French side of the island).
