Authentication and translations of documents

Authentication of Documents from Canada for use in Norway

As of January 11, 2024, Canada has become a part of the Apostille Convention.

Documents issued in Canada no longer require a legalization from the Embassy in order to be used in Norway. Please refer to Global Affairs Canada and learn how you can acquire an Apostille Stamp on your Canadian issued document.
