Gå til elektronisk søknad om politiattest

Politiattesten kan bare skrives ut til de formål som er omtalt i lov eller forskrift, og gis bare ut til konkrete formål, ikke på generelt grunnlag. Du finner oversikten over formålene som vedlegg til høyre på denne siden.

Saksbehandlingstiden er normalt to uker, men i perioder med stor pågang, seinsommer og høst, kan den komme opp mot fire uker.

Taushetsplikt

Politiattester skrives ut på grunnlag av opplysninger fra politiets registre. Disse opplysningene er underlagt taushetsplikt.

Politiattesten utstedes på papir og sendes til adresse oppgitt i søknaden eller til folkeregistrert adresse med vanlig post. Politiattester sendes aldri på e-post, og det opplyses heller ikke om innholdet i politiattester på telefon.

Criminal record certificate

A criminal record certificate contains information about a person's entries in the police records. A criminal record certificate is required in many professions and when working for voluntary organisations.

Criminal record certificates are only issued for the purposes described in laws and regulations and only for specific reasons – not on a general basis. You can find a list of these reasons in the top right-hand corner of this page.

The estimated processing time for a criminal record certificate application is 2 weeks. During late summer and fall, it might take up to 4 weeks processing an application.

Confidentiality

Criminal record certificates are issued on the basis of information obtained from police records. This information is confidential.

Criminal record certificates are only issued on paper. Your criminal record certificate will be sent by ordinary post to the address stated in the application or to the address registered in the Norwegian Population Register.Criminal record certificates will not be sent by email, and information about the contents will not be disclosed over the phone.

Appeals

You may submit a written appeal if you disagree with the contents of the certificate, or if your application for a criminal record certificate has been rejected.

Your written appeal should be sent to Politiets Enhet for Vandelskontroll og Politiattester, which also processed your initial application.

If your appeal is accepted, a new criminal record certificate will be issued. If it is not accepted, it will be forwarded to the National Police Directorate for a final decision.

The deadline for submitting an appeal is three weeks from the date you receive the criminal record certificate.
