Application for a D-number

What is D-number?

The D-number is a temporary identification number that is issued to foreigners who intend to stay in Norway for less than six months. In practice, it is issued at the beginning of your stay in order to complete all formalities and legally work in Norway.

The D-number consists of 11 digits, where the first six digits represent the date of birth, but the first number is incremented by 4 (first digit of the day of birth).

The tax authorities order a D-number for people who are subject to tax in Norway and have a tax card. The D-number is also most often obtained together with the first tax card. A D-number can also be obtained if you need to represent a company in Norway.
