Guide for Obtaining a Norwegian Bank Account

 

Pa Polsku

STEP 1: Acquire a Norwegian national ID-Number or D-Number

You have to meet up in person at your nearest Skattekontor (Tax office).

skatteetaten.no/en/Person/Tax-deduction-card-and-advance-tax/Foreign-employees/Offices-for-ID-validation/

You can use the above link to find your nearest Skattekontor. When you visit the Skattekontor you need to bring the following documentation:

– Passport

– Labor Contract

– Oppdragsbekreftelse

The Skattekontor will then do an ID-check of you and you will receive a D-number which acts as a temporary Norwegian identification-number. After you do the ID-check the Skattekontor will send you a D-number within 10 days. You can choose to have it sent to either your e-mail or postal mail.  

STEP 2: Gather needed documentation

You will need:

– Your passport.

– Labor contract from Hire Norway.

– Oppdragsbekreftelse

– Norwegian D-Number

STEP 3: Locate your nearest bank

On dnb.no/om-oss/kontorer/kontorer.html You will find a map which will help you find your nearest DNB-bank. You can of course choose to use a different bank, a full list of Norwegian banks can be found here:

STEP 4: Visit your nearest bank

Now all you have to do is gather all the documentation from step 2, bring it to your chosen bank and create an account.
