This section only describes the general prosess for gaining entrance to Norway and may not be valid during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Short-term visits (less than three months)
Citizens of EU/EEA countries do not need a residence permit or visa to visit Norway, and do not need to report their move after arrival.
Long-term visits (more than three months)
If your stay exceeds three months, you can travel to Norway and immediately start work at CAS; however, you must register with the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) within the first three months of your stay.
To register, visit the UDI Application Portal, create a new account, and book an appointment. The appointment will take place at the Oslo Police District, located at Schweigaards gate 15.
At the police office, check in with the welcome desk, and then wait for your name to be called.
For a list of the documentation to bring to the appointment, visit the UDI website. Remember to also bring your formal invitation letter from CAS, which details the duration and purpose of your stay.
Additionally, if your stay exceeds six months, you will need to report your move to Norway no later than eight days after your arrival. To report your move, please visit the Service Centre for Foreign Workers, located at Schweigaards gate 17.
At the Service Centre, take a numbered ticket for the queue, and then fill out the form ‘RF-1401 Notification to the tax office of a move to Norway from abroad.’ (Alternatively, complete the form in advance and bring it to the Service Centre.)

For a list of the documentation to bring to the Service Centre, visit the Taxnorway website. Remember to also bring your formal invitation letter from CAS, which details the duration and purpose of your stay.
