Only Norwegian citizens will be able to apply for this for the time being, and it is voluntary to have a national ID card.
It is possible to get the national ID card with “the right to travel” so that you can use it as a travel document (in the same way as a passport) when you travel to the EEA countries and Switzerland.
According to the plan, it will be possible to apply for a national ID card from November 2020. You will be able to book an appointment with the police to apply for a national ID card when this is ready, in the same way as you apply for a passport.
See more information about national ID cards on the police website (external website) (content only in Norwegian).
