DUF number

If you have applied for protection (asylum) or for a residence permit in Norway, you will be assigned a DUF number.
  • The DUF number is your registration number in the computer system of the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (the UDI). 
  • Everyone who applies for protection (asylum) or for a residence permit in Norway will be assigned a DUF number. 

  • You will keep the same DUF number if you apply again. 

  • The number has 12 digits and starts with the year when you applied for the first time (for example: 2012 586975 61). 

  • You will find your DUF number on the case documents from the UDI. If you have a card for asylum seeker or a residence cardyou will find your DUF number there as well. 

After having been granted residence permit in Norway, you will be assigned a number or a national identity number.

Statsborgere av EU/EØS-land må selv kontakte Skatteetaten (ekstern nettstad) for å få tildelt eit D-nummer eller fødselsnummer.
EU/EEA citizens must contact the Norwegian Tax Administration (external website) to be assigned a D-number or a national identity number.
