Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

Norwegian authorities will normally require U.S. citizens getting married in Norway to present a marriage affidavit.

A marriage affidavit is issued at the Embassy. It is your own sworn statement that you are eligible to be married. You must be present at the Embassy to sign in front of the notary and you need to book an appointment for this service. Bring your valid U.S. passport. The $50 fee is payable in cash or by credit card.

We will prepare the statement for you while you wait at the Embassy.

We recommend that you contact the authority which is to marry you for other required documents.
