Apostille Countries

The legalisation convention is the convention abolishing the requirement of legalisation for foreign public documents, also known as the Apostille Convention (5 October 1961). This convention does not completely abolish legalisation but shortens the chain so that only a single action is required, the addition of an apostille. A document bearing an apostille does not require any further legalisation by the embassy or consulate of the country in which it is to be used.

Document certification

Norwegian documents must have an apostille stamp in order to be considered valid abroad. A document must be certified by a notary public (a senior civil servant authorised to perform public and judicial tasks) and stamped with the public authority’s official stamp. It is important that the name and title of the person in question is stated clearly, either typed or written in capital letters below the signature Documents translated by state-authorised translators need not be stamped by a notary public before receiving an apostille stamp.

An apostille makes a document legal. An apostille does not certify the content of the document to be true, but certifies that the signature of the notary public is genuine.

The office of the county governor legalises documents for use in foreign countries that ratify the Haag convention of 5 October 1961. The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs keeps a record of these countries. Advice on documents to be used in countries not bound by the Haag convention may be sought from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Within Scandinavia, certification from a notary public is all that is necessary to endorse a document.
