You can be registered in the National Registry with a residential address and a postal address. You can add a postal address if you want your post to be sent to a different address than your residential address. This applies regardless of whether you have a national identity number or a D number.
If you live in Norway, it's important that you notify the Norwegian Tax Administration of the address you wish your post to be sent to. You must also notify us of your new postal address if you have left Norway and you have a new address abroad. Your address information is used by public agencies and private companies that need to communicate with you. For example, if you have paid too much tax and have left Norway, we'll have to contact you in order to refund the tax you're owed.
How to change/add a postal address:
However, if you move from your address registered at in the National Population Registry, you must submit a Change of address notification. Note! You must notify Posten Norge of the new address, and mark your post box with your name and address.
Submitting on paper
You can also send us a paper notification of the new or amended postal address. Remember to enclose a copy of valid identification. Valid identification is an ID card showing your date of birth, name, signature and a photograph. Do not send us a copy of your bank card as it contains sensitive information.

Posten has a separate address register. The National Registry will not notify Posten when it registers your new address. You must therefore also remember to notify Posten if your postal address changes.
