Consular inscription

To obtain a consular inscription, a copy of your passport and birth certificate are required.

The Embassy and the Consulate General charges a fee for issuing the consular inscription, and an additional fee for sending you the document. You can find a list of prices in the menu to the left under "Consular fees".

For overseas postal expenses, please contact the Embassy or the Consulate General.

The process will on average take three days.


Brazil has implemented the Convention of Apostille since August 14, 2016

Brazil has adhered to the Hague Convention (The Hague Convention of 5 October 1961), also known as the Apostille Convention. The Apostille replaces the legalisation process, which means that neither the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs nor the Danish Diplomatic Representations are able to legalise documents since August 14.

The Apostille is a certificate used to legalise documents, as well as certified translations thereof. As a result, for a Brazilian document to have legal effect in Denmark, the Apostille is necessary.

The public notaries in all Brazilian capitals will issue Apostilles. The public notaries that are not located in capitals will in the near future request authorisation to issue Apostilles as well.

The price of the Apostilles depends on the state.

For more information, please contact the public notaries in the capital of your state.
