Get a tax card as a Nordic national

Note: Due to limited resources, UiO cannot apply for a tax card on your behalf.

  • Book an appointment to apply for a tax card (sua.no) at the Service Center for Foreign Workers in Oslo. Note: If you have already booked an appointment for submitting the notification of move to Norway, you can submit the application for tax deduction card at the same appointment.

  • Bring the following documents to this appointment:

    1. Your passport or National ID card containing a photo of you as well as indicating your citizenship and gender

    2. Your employment contract with UiO. If the contract is older than 3 months, bring confirmation from your local personnel officer that the contract is still valid.

    3. A property purchase or rental contract valid for at least 6 months. If the rental contract is older than 3 months, you must also bring confirmation from the owner that the contract is still valid.

    4. A completed application for tax deduction card (RF1209) (pdf) (skatteetaten.no).

  • At the appointment, the tax office will carry out an ID check. Depending on the circumstances, you will either receive a temporary ID number (D number) at once or you will receive a permanent ID number in the mail after approximately 2 weeks.

  • Either way, you must submit this number to your local personnel officer for registration in UiO's payroll and personnel system. This will enable UiO to access your tax card electronically.

  • Normally, your tax deduction card will be available to UiO within 5 days.
