Legalisation makes documents suitable for use in another country. To legalise a document, the competent authorities sign and stamp it. Several different steps may be needed to complete the process.

  • Legalisation verifies that:

    • The signature on the document is genuine.
    • The person who has signed the document is a public official who is authorised to sign the document concerned (i.e. the signature of a government authorised translator or similar is not sufficient).
    • The official stamp of the government agency that has issued the document is genuine.

    The Royal Thai Embassy does NOT verify or entail:

    • Any validation of the accuracy of the content of the document.
    • A signature of a foreigner.

The normal legalisation process:

1. A foreign document must be translated into English.

2. The document has to be certified by a notary public (usually the district court).

3. The document has to be legalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway.

4. The document needs to be certified by the embassy/consulate that represents the country in which the document is to be used.

  1. *The original and translated documents must be separately legalized*
