Less red tape in use of EU public documents
11/03/2019: The 'Regulation on Public Documents' aims to simplify the use of certain public documents.
Previously when citizens registering in the Belgian municipality had to present for example a marriage certificate issued in another EU country, this certificate usually required an authentication and a translation. The Regulation now puts an end to a number of bureaucratic procedures:
- Public EU documents (birth, marriage,...) must be accepted by another EU country without the need for authentification ie the apostille
- As a rule separate translations are no longer required. If the EU document is not in the language requested by the Belgian municipality, a standard multilingual version can be obtained from the issuing authority in the origin EU country (! not all documents are available in every EU country yet!)
- Should for some reason a translation be needed, the Belgian municipality must accept a certified translation made in any EU country
