Registration certificate for EU/EEA nationals


A registration certificate is a document confirming that the police have registered you as an EU/EEA national living in Norway.

Norwegian authorities demand that you register when you are an EU/EEA national living in Norway. The purpose of this registration is for Norwegian authorities to have an overview of how many EU/EEA nationals are living in Norway.

The registration certificate is not a document that confirms your right of residence in Norway. If you need to document that you have right of residence, you can do this by showing for example an employment contract, payment slips, proof that you are a student or similar documents to those who are asking you to document your right of residence.
