Request a multilingual standard form

The multilingual standard form is a translation of a public document you requested at the municipality.

What is it?

Would you like to use a document you have requested at the municipality in another European Union (EU) country? An authority can ask you for a multilingual standard form. You will get the document in Dutch and in the language of the country where you are handing in the document. 

You can request a multilingual standard form for:

  • an extract of a civil status certificate (birth, marriage, divorce, unmarried partnership, termination of unmarried partnership, death)
  • attestation de vita
  • a declaration of no impediment
  • a standard BRP extract with information about your home address or civil status

Apply

You can request the document and the multilingual standard form at the same time. You can do this by sending an email or in person at a municipal counter.

Online

Send an email to: dpz.kcctl@denhaag.nl. Your email should include the following information:

  • your name and address
  • the document you would like to request
  • that you would also like to request a multilingual standard form
  • the name of the EU country
  • a copy/scan of your valid form of identification

The municipality will send the multilingual standard form to you together with the invoice.

In person

You can make an appointment online at City Hall Spui or the Leyweg City Office.

Fees

The fees are the same as the fees for the document you are requesting. In total you pay twice the amount.

As of 1 February 2020 a multilingual standard form costs:

  • € 13.80 extra for a standard extract from the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriage
  • € 18.60 extra for a declaration of no impediment

Good to know

You can request a multiple-language (international extract) for a birth certificate, marriage certificate and death certificate. The extract has an explanation in 10 languages: Dutch, English, French, German, Spanish, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Turkish and Serbo-Croatian. If you request this document, you will not need a multilingual standard form in many cases.
