About us

The Norwegian ID Centre is an independent administrative body under the Norwegian Police Directorate. The aim of the Norwegian ID Centre is to strengthen and support the immigration authorities and police in their ID work - such as establishing the identity of new arrivals to the country or foreign nationals applying for residency.

The recommendations of the Norwegian ID Centre support the work of the authorities in cases of deportation, where deportees do not possess a residency permit for Norway. Our work in the field of identity is also of benefit in the effort to combat crime.
