Not performing unofficial translations

The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur will unfortunately no longer be issuing unofficial translations of documents.

This includes all translations, including drivers licences, birth certificates, etc.

No exceptions may be made.


For translations to be official, a specific legalisation process must be followed.

  • Document must be certified by a notary public (normally the district court);
  • Document must then be legalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; and then:
  • Legalised by the embassy or consulate of the country in which it is to be used. For Norwegian documents to be legalised for use in Malaysia, this will be the Embassy of Malaysia in Stockholm
