What happens next?
- If you can document the housing requirements, you will receive a permanent Norwegian ID number in a letter from the Tax Administration, normally within three weeks.
- If you cannot document the housing requirements, you will receive a temporary Norwegian ID number, a so-called D number.
- Both the permanent and temporary Norwegian ID number will allow you to open a Norwegian bank account, but only a permanent Norwegian ID number will lead to the assignment of a general practitioner (GP) in Norway.
- Submit the Norwegian ID number to your local personnel officer.
- If you do not receive your Norwegian ID number within 3 weeks, please contact the Norwegian Tax Administration (skatteetaten.no).
