I recently arrived in Norway, but I have not received a residence card yet. May I start working?
If you have been granted a residence permit that gives you the right to work, you can start working when you have met with the police, and the police have ordered a residence card for you.
There can be long waiting times with the police to order a residence card. Even if you have not yet received a residence card, you can start studying or working now if you have been granted a residence permit that gives you the right to study or work, and you have booked an appointment with the police to order a residence card. This will not have any consequences for you.
If it is impossible to book an appointment with the police, you must contact UDI by phone or email to report that you are in Norway and starting to study or work. You must still meet with the police to order a residence card when possible.
