How to submit your criminal record certificate

To process your application for a background check, you need to submit your criminal records from every country you have lived in for more than six months in the last five years.

It is important that you do not attach your criminal record with the background check application or attached to an e-mail to the Civil Aviation Authority Norway.

Your criminal record certificate can be submitted in the following ways:
