Registration of EU/EEA citizens

If you are an EU/EEA citizen, you can work, study and live in Norway without a residence permit or residence card. However, all EU/EEA citizens who intend to live in Norway for more than three months must register with the police. Family members of EU/EEA citizens must also register.

How to register:

Register your application in the application portal and make an appointment with the police to submit your documents.

Once you have submitted the necessary documents to the police, you will receive a registration document which confirms that you live in Norway. You only need to register once, regardless of how long you stay in Norway.

Permanent residence permits for EU/EEA citizens

If you are an EU/EEA citizen and have been staying in Norway for more than five years, you can apply for a permanent residence permit. A permanent residence permit allows you, as an EU/EEA citizen or the family member of an EU/EEA citizen, to stay and work in Norway indefinitely. The permit also gives some additional protection against being expelled.

How to apply:

Register your application in the application portal and make an appointment with the police to submit your documents.
