EU/EEA nationals will be issued a permanent residence certificate

You will be sent a permanent residence certificate, which confirms that you have been granted permanent right of residence.

A permanent residence certificate is valid indefinitely and does not need to be renewed. You will not be issued a residence card, and you will not get a sticker or stamp in your passport. 

A permanent residence certificate confers more rights than a registration certificate. Among other things, you can stay abroad for longer periods without losing your right of residence, and you are better protected against expulsion and rejection. Family members of EU/EEA nationals also retain the right to stay in Norway if the parties divorce or the EEA national dies.

Please notify the Norwegian Tax Administration / Population Register if you move, either to a new address in Norway or into/out of Norway.
