Apostille on the U.S. documents meant for use in Norway
The Apostille Convention is treaty drafted by the Hague Conference on Private International Law in 1961. The agreement determines the modalities through which a document issued in one of the signatory countries can be certified for legal purposes in all the other signatory states. Such a certification is known as an Apostille. Apostille Certificates (Apostille Stamps) are affixed by Competent Authorities designated by the government of a country which is party to the Hague Convention.
The purpose of the Apostille Treaty was to abolish the requirements of consular/embassy legalization of the official and public documents destined for foreign countries, the parties of the convention, mentioned above. Apostille is to make a the procedure of documents legalization easier by verifying their authenticity by appropriate official county, state and federal authorities in the country where the documents were produced. Once certified by an apostille, the documents do not necessitate further embassy or consular legalization.
Norway as a party to the Apostille Convention
Norway has been entered and ratified the Apostille Convention on July 15, 1955. From then on, any document meant to be used in Norway or presented to private, official or legal authorities in Norway or a Norway Consulate, must be accompanied by an Apostille Certificate in order to be recognized and accepted.
Obtaining an Apostille on a document destined for Norway is not an obscure procedure. Nonetheless, take into consideration that every single document requires special approach in order to be prepared properly.
For instance, a document, signed by an affiant giving an Affidavit, a principal granting a Power of Attorney, a witness, signing a document in presence of a Notary Public, is typically processed in two simple steps – obtaining an authentication slip (if needed) and apostilling the document. However, such documents as Vital Records Certificates, FBI Background Check Certificate, corporate and business documents and legal documents demand understanding of which agencies and authorities to involve in the Apostille process.
For that reason, if you’ve never done before the documents for Norway, it is recommended to employ proficient Apostille providers dedicated to keep you from committing mistakes. Above and beyond, if prepared by expert notaries and Apostille Agents, the documents will be processed in accordance with established international directives, and will be unquestionably recognized by official authorities in Norway.

Document retrieving services
If you have to apostille a Birth, Marriage or Death Certificate or Divorce Decree, bear in mind that an Office of the Secretary of State will not issue an Apostille on the originals of these documents. It is because one should obtain so called “certified copies” (accompanied by an Exemplification Letter in some states) of the documents first and then keep on with their authentication and apostilling.
Presently, most of the Apostille services agencies do not offer either document retrieving services or translation services, leaving to you the chore of documents retrieval and translating documents into Norwegian (if required).
This means that you should find out what documents to obtain, make inquiries on where to order them and learn how to place an order. You also have to find a certified translation agency who will translate your documents into Norwegian once an apostille on them is obtained.
