Important - when ordering certificates

You need to log in to Altinn to order.

  • If you are ordering certificates on behalf of others (for instance, your minor children) you can use the field "Enquiry or Comments" for stating what is the purpose, and who the certificate is meant for .
  • Here you can also state if you need the certificate in english or multilingual version, if the certificate can be issued in other languages.

The certificate will then be sent by mail to your postal address according to the National Registry.

  • We do not send certificates by email.
  • We do not issue certificate printouts to you in person at the National registry.

This will normally take three days. In addition, postal service.

Ordering passports
