Legalisations at the regional Court
Since 1 January 2021 it is not necessary and not possible anymore to legalize the signature of the sworn translator at the Court of First Instance.
All Belgian sworn translators have received in 2021 a new official stamp with their VTI number on it, which has been assigned to them by the Natonal Register of Sworn Translators and Interpreters. With this new stamp a legalisation is not necessary anymore if you are going to use your translation for a Belgian authority.
If you are going to use your translation for a foreign authority, then you will probably need some legalisations. The exact legalisation procedure will depend on the country of destination. For most countries you will need an Apostille. In order to obtain an Apostille we first have to legalize the signature of the sworn translator at the Ministry of Justice, and afterwards we have to legalize the signature of the Ministry of Justice at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
