Legalisation

The Embassy can legalise documents and provide services that Notarius Publicus normally conduct in Norway.

 

Legalisations:

Persons who wish to legalise a document for use in Norway, Jordan or Iraq, must schedule an appoinment and meet in person at the Embassy. The Embassy can also legalise documents on behalf of Finland, adhering to the same rules as for Norway. Information regarding this is stated below.

An appointment can be made by emailing emb.amman@mfa.no or calling the Embassy.

The Embassy only legalises documents when it is beneficial for a Norwegian citizen or Norwegian interests.

The document must be legalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jordan or Norway. Please note that the Embassy cannot legalise Iraqi documents. This also applies to cases in which an Iraqi document is legalised by the Iraqi Embassy in Jordan, and thereafter the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Applicants must bring all necessary docuemtns to the Embassy, including their passport. The fee for legalisation is 18 JOD per document. This amount must be paid in cash when the documents are handed in at the Embassy.

Legalised documents will be available for collection on the next working day. The Embassy will notify the applicant when the document(s) are ready for collection.
