Normally a passport or a national identity card will contain the required information as mentioned above.

It is important that the machine readable strip at the bottom of the passport shows on the copy of the passport.

The reverse side of the ID-card usually contains a machine readable strip. A certified copy of the reverse side of the card must also be enclosed.

The main rule is that the identification document must be issued by a public authority.

Who can certify a copy?

A copy may be certified by

  • a Norwegian public authority
  • a Nordic police authority
  • a Norwegian lawyer
  • a Norwegian state authorised or registered auditor
  • a Norwegian authorised accountant
  • a Nordic embassy
  • a foreign entity with notary powers

Anyone who certifies the copy must stamp and sign on it. We cannot accept a copy of the stamp and signature.

If you already have a d-number, this is to be used in connection with registrations

If you do not have access to or have questions about your d-number, you may contact the National Registry at the Tax Administration.
The Tax Administration submits a confirmation of your d-number after this has been assigned. The confirmation will be submitted by post to the address you are registered with in the National Registry.
