Coronavirus - important information about services offered by the Tax Administration

  • Updated: 26 January 2021

The Tax Administration’s services will be affected by the coronavirus situation.

You must book an appointment

Before coming to the tax office, you must book an appointment.

You must wear a mask

You must bring your own mask, and you will not be admitted without one.

Only those who are required to physically go to a tax office may book an appointment.

These services include:

  • Applying for a tax deduction card for the first time – foreign citizens only
  • Reporting a move to Norway – Norwegian and foreign citizens
  • Confirming paternity
  • ID checks – for those who have received a Norwegian identity number without going to a tax office or a SUA office

No offices are open for drop-in visits.

If you’re a foreign worker, you can book an appointment at a SUA office (Service Centre for Foreign Workers) in Stavanger, Bergen, Trondheim or Kirkenes.

You can contact us via other channels

If you want to talk to us, you can also find us on Facebook, you can call us or chat with us.

This is what you have to do as an employer:

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 to Norway. Usually, this requires that you physically go to a tax office within 8 days from the date you moved. 

We have limited opportunity to issue certificates requiring stamps and signatures. This applies to birth certificates, residence certificates, printouts from the National Population Register, certificates regarding parental responsibility and marriage certificates.

Please only order the certificate if it is strictly necessary. Unfortunately, we cannot provide an estimated delivery time.
