Non-EU/EEA citizens

You can become a member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme (Folketrygden) either automatically or voluntarily, depending on the duration of your stay in Norway. The membership entitles you to medically necessary, state-provided healthcare under the same conditions and at the same cost as Norwegian citizens.

 

Please note that you are only covered in Norway – not while travelling to or from Norway, or on travels abroad. Dental care and medicines or treatment of illnesses contracted before arrival in Norway are not covered.

In Norway for more than 12 months – automatic member

If you are staying in Norway for more than 12 months you will become member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme once you have registered your move to Norway from abroad and received a Norwegian identity number (fødselsnummer).

In Norway for less than 12 months – voluntary member

If you are staying in Norway for less than 12 months we strongly recommend that you become a voluntary member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme.

How to apply for voluntary membership

To apply for voluntary membership in the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme, you must fill in the form “Application for insurance during stay in Norway” and hand it in at your local National Insurance (NAV) office. You can pick up the form and get directions to local office at our International Office in C3.

In Norway for less than three months

If you are staying in Norway for less than three months you must obtain medical and travel insurance from your home country.
