Brexit – registering as a resident in Norway
If you're a British citizen who is registered as a resident in Norway, who has reported a move to Norway or who is going to report a move to Norway, you'll find information about what you should do in this article.
You must apply for a new residence permit. Read more on the website of the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI).
If you receive a new type of residence permit, the National Population Register will be updated with your new permit information. You do not need to contact us.
You have to visit the police and order a residence card, when you`ve received your residence permit.
The police will notify the Norwegian Tax Administration that you’re moving to Norway and need a Norwegian identification number (national identity number or D number).This means you do not have to go to the tax office to obtain a Norwegian identification number.
If you as a British citizen are to have a right of residence pursuant to EEA regulations after 1 January 2021, it must be as a service provider or based on a family relation with a person with rights pursuant to EEA regulations. This could be an EEA citizen or a Norwegian citizen.
Generally, you must apply for a Schengen residence permit from the immigration authorities.
If you do not wish to wait, you can report a move before you've applied for a Schengen residence permit. You must then document your right of residence to us in connection with your notification of a move.
