General rules on residence and work permits

  • EEA citizens (EU and EFTA) may register with the Norwegian authorities instead of applying for a residence and work permit. EEA citizens must register if they intend to stay and work in Norway for longer than three months. The registration scheme is managed by the Norwegian police service.
  • Citizens of the Nordic countries are automatically entitled to reside and work in Norway.
  • Non-EEA citizens must usually apply for a residence permit.
  • If you hold a temporary residence and work permit, you must notify your employer to that effect. Your permit must be renewed no later than one month before it expires. Forms for registering and applying for residence and work permits in Norway can be found on the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration website. Information about tax deduction cards and identity checks, required documentation and application forms can be found on the Norwegian Tax Administration's website or on the New in Norway website.
  • Once you have applied for a tax deduction card and undergone an identity check you will be issued with a national ID number or D number. You can find more information on the Norwegian Tax Administration and New in Norway websites.
  • You must have a Norwegian national ID number in order to open a bank account and receive salary payments.
