Moving to Norway

Are you planning to move to Norway? Here, we explain what you need to do to report a move to Norway.

If you intend to live in Norway for at least six months, or to stay here for at least six consecutive months, you must notify us that you're moving. Usually this requires personal attendance at a tax office within eight days from the date you moved. Because some of our offices are temporarily closed you can await the notification until an offices near you are opened.

If you meet the criteria for reporting a move to Norway, and you have a special need (for example, the need for health care) to report the move immediately, you may be exempt from physically going to a tax office, and send the notification electronically. Remember to state the reason for your special need in the notification.



You’ll be asked to answer a few questions so that we can give you relevant information.
