Registered as moved from Norway in the National Registry


The UDI decides which foreign citizens with a Norwegian national ID number (fødselsnummer) that should be registered as moved from Norway in the National Registry.

Why are you registered as moved from Norway?

If you no longer have legal residence in Norway, you will not be registered as residing in Norway in the National Registry anymore. This means that you will be registered as moved from Norway in the National Registry.

If your residence permit is not valid anymore, and you have not applied for a renewal of your residence permit, the UDI will decide that you should be registered as moved from Norway in the National Registry. This happens automatically and you will not be notified.

What are the consequences of being registered as moved from Norway?

If you are registered as moved from Norway in the National Registry while you are still in Norway, this has a wide range of consequences for you. You can experience problems with public services, for example health care, education and the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV).
