Applicants who have registered online at https://selfservice.udi.no/ must meet in person in order to complete the registration.
When registering online, you must choose between two different offices. One is the immigration office, the other one is for foreign workers. You must choose "Oslo, Service Centre for Foreign Workers," even if you are a student.
We recommend starting this process as early as possible. It is advised that you do this before arriving in Oslo, since it can be several weeks, even months before there is an available time for an appointment.
Outside the EU/EEA students:
Presenting yourself at the immigration section – Oslo police
You must have an appointment with the immigration division at the Oslo police in order to receive the residence decision letter and the residence card. Normally, you book the appointment through UDI’s online Application Portal at https://selfservice.udi.no/. You book the appointment with the same application that you already registered on the Application Portal. Note that the application must be active in order for you to be able to book an appointment. If it is archived or deleted, you must contact the police directly and book an appointment by phone, (phone: +47 22 34 21 00) on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday between 9:00 and 13:00.
Please note! You do not need to register a new application or pay a fee in order to book such an appointment with the police.
This is where you go for your appointment: Immigration section – Oslo police. Address: Schweigaardsgate 15 B
Apply for a Social Security ID
You must apply for a Norwegian Social Security ID at the central tax office Skatt Øst. Bring your residence permit/card to apply for the social security ID.
