What is notarisation?
Notarisation is a public verification of a document or a signature. This verification is provided by a notary public. In Oslo, the Oslo County Court acts as notary public.
Why must a document be notarised?
Notarisation may be necessary for documents to be used abroad. Foreign authorities, organisations or enterprises will normally require a document to be notarised. A document will often require additional verification in the form of an apostil from the County Governor's Office, or legalisation through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, depending upon which country the document will be used in.
Which types of notarisation are provided by the Notary Public in Oslo?
The Notary Public in Oslo provides different types of notarisation. The verification provided depends on the type of document, and what documentation you present. You can find information about the most common types of notarisation we provide in the menu on the left.
How can I obtain a notarisation?
Certain types of notarisation require your personal presence and proof of identity. You can find more information about this by reading about the different types of notarisation.
Do I have to make an appointment for notarisation?
Notarisation does not require an advance appointment, and is carried out in the reception while you wait. Particularly extensive notarisations can be picked up the next day.
What is the cost of a notarisation?
As of 1 January 2020, there is a fee of NOK 293 per notarisation. The amount must be paid in advance at our reception. We encourage our users to pay with a debit card/credit card.
