Legalisation verifies that:
- The signature on the document is genuine.
- The person who has signed the document is a public official who is authorised to sign the document concerned (i.e. the signature of a government authorised translator or similar is not sufficient).
- The official stamp of the government agency that has issued the document is genuine.
The Royal Thai Embassy does NOT verify or entail:
- Any validation of the accuracy of the content of the document.
- A signature of a foreigner.
Therefore, the normal legalisation process is as below:
- Firstly, the document is certified by a notary public, normally the district court (click here, NOTARIUS PUBLICUS).
- It is then legalised by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (click here, Legalisation/Legaliseringer).
- Lastly, the document is legalised by the Royal Thai Embassy so it can be used in Thailand.
- A foreign applicant or representative MUST bring his/her valid passport together with a copy of his/her passport along with an application.
- A request form, download here A request form for legalisation.
Fee: 120NOK (Cash only, please bring the exact amount) per one verification/stamp.
Processing times: 2 working days (after the fee is paid).
NOTE: If an applicant wants to have documents mailed back, a self-addressed stamped A4 size envelope with sufficient postage stamp (250NOK of postage stamp with tracking number from Posten to be send as a registered letter) MUST be included with the application.
The Royal Thai Embassy is NOT responsible for a lost parcel or envelope.
