Hello

Please help.
I want to legalize my marriage certficate to register the marriage in Netherlands. Can anyone recommend some travel agent in Bangalore who can take care of all the procedure starting from stamping the marriage certificate at vidhasoudha to Ministry of external affairs to final legalization at dutch consulate, Mumbai.
Can we just give authorisation letter to the agent to get all the work done.
thank you very much in advance.

I have moved the thread to the Marriage-related Visa Questions forum and adjusted the title in the hope that it will attract useful replies.

Well, my Indian wife and I got our marriage certificate apostilled as part of the process for her US Green Card. Is that what you're talking about? We went to the MEA, had some forms filled out by the clerks in the courtyard, left the marriage certificate and her passport with them overnight, and got the stamp.

Search on 'apostille' for other experiences. If it's some other stamp you're after, then don't.

thanks for the reply.

Yes, we need the same stamp on our Marriage Certificate.

But, can we get it done on the xerox copy/copies of the Marriage Certificate or only on the Original Copy? and do I need to take any other paper other then the Certificate?

I read somewhere that we need to get some other stamp too before presenting the certificate before MEA.

No other stamp -- we presented the original marriage certificate, they placed the apostille stamp on the back. We also submitted a copy at the same time.

Also, I checked with my wife, and there were no other forms (we were doing so much form-submitting around that time I must have confused them); certificate only.

Don't know abut the Netherlands, but my US birth certificate did not need to be attested. I got a certified copy of mine from the state where I was born, no issues.

in which city are you? how long does it take to get the certificate attested? I would say there is no harm to get it done, who knows you will need or you will not.

I am in Karnataka and spouse birth certificate is from Kerala. And Kerala authorities are now stopped accepting via agents.

Before obtaining the apostille at the MEA in Delhi you need to get you Marriage Certificate authenticated at the State level. You can see the MEA website for the procedure here:
http://meaindia.nic.in/mystart.php?id=8801

Personal experiences with detailed explanations for Mumbai are here:

and then more info on the process in Delhi:
