Life Certificates 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs asks the public not to contact Norwegian foreign stations for confirmation of life certificates in 2021. At this time, the signature of two witnesses will be considered sufficient.

The life certificate should be signed by the pensioner himself/herself. In addition, two witnesses (two legally capable persons), or a public authority where the pensioner is living, should confirm that the pensioner is alive.
