The Embassy can legalise documents and provide the same services as the Notary Public in Norway.
Legalisation of documents are provided by appointment only. An appointment can be made by emailing the consular section at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Embassy only legalises documents that are to the benefit of a Norwegian citizen or to Norwegian interests.
The document must be legalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Saudi Arabia or by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Norway before being presented at the Embassy. Please note that the Embassy cannot legalise documents from Somalia.
Applicants must bring all necessary documents to the Embassy, including their passport. Legalised documents will usually be available for collection on the next working day. The Embassy will notify the applicant when the document(s) are ready for collection.
In accordance with the Norwegian Foreign Service Act section 13. Notarial acts, the Embassy may perform any act a notary public in Norway is authorised to perform, if this is done on behalf of a Norwegian citizen or the matter is otherwise linked to Norway or Norwegian interests.
This includes the following services:
- Confirm true copy
- Confirm signatures
- Confirm that a person is alive (life certificate)
The Embassy can only confirm true copy of Norwegian original documents, for example Norwegian passports, diplomas, birth certificates and residency certificates. We cannot confirm true copy of foreign documents.
Notary public services are provided by appointment only. An appointment can be made by emailing the consular section at email@example.com.
The fee is paid by card at the Embassy. Please see our list of fees for updated information.
