Welcome to our new portal!
Our staff have been working towards this goal for a long time. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that we can finally show you the results of our efforts. This is a short preview of what you will find on our website.
Everything from before – PLUS more!
When you sign in, you will find much of the same content as before. However, the new layout will make it easier for you to find what you need – from the latest developments in identity work to our online courses. We like to keep our content up to date, and are also open to suggestions from our users. If you would like to submit a suggestion, you can do so here.
The Norwegian ID Centre’s new portal is based on the latest technology available, including Responsive Web Design. This means that the content is automatically adapted to suit the device you are using, whether you are checking the latest developments on your smart phone, using a pc at the office, or working out in the field with a tablet.
Information at your fingertips
The new guides have a central place on our new home page. These feature a step-by-step approach, allowing you to find the most appropriate information for your situation. Our aim is to make fact-finding easier and faster for our users.
Showing the way
There are 3 guides available at present, which you will find in the menu under the heading ‘Training,’ at the top of the home page. You will also find a selection of guides presented on the home page, under the logo and meny. These will be updated and supplemented in the future.
The guides are only available to registered users. To get access to the guides, you must first sign in. Here are some examples of what the guides contain:
Guide 1 - Face comparison
This shows you how to compare an applicant’s face with their photo when carrying out an inspection. You will be taken through the process step-by-step. We also explain how to send photos to us for further examination by our resident experts at the Norwegian ID Centre.
