Registration with the police for EU/EEA citizens

Students with EU/EEA citizenship need to register with the Oslo Police within 3 months after arrival in Norway. Only applicable for students staying in Norway for more than 3 months.

Important information: 

Students arriving autumn 2021 or spring 2022 may register and book an appointment with the police before their arrival in Oslo. 

Please be aware there are currently few appointments available. However, you must book the first available appointment with the police even if it is more than 3 months after your arrival. You can start your studies and stay in Norway, even if you have not been able to meet with the police.

UiO will update our webpage and inform students if we receive further information about available appointments from the police. 

We recommend that you log on regularly to see if there are any earlier appointments available. For any further questions, please contact the Oslo Police Department

Please note that Nordic citizens do not have to register with the Police.
