  5. If you are a resident of Norway and have a valid residence card, you will still be able to travel to Norway. You can read more about quarantine and isolation at (external website).

  6. All police stations are closed to the public from March 12-th until March 26th due to the Corona virus. Waiting time to get an appointment at the police can be long. There is no other way to get a residence card than through a police presence. Follow the police website (external website) for information on when they will be able to turn up.

    Because it is now not possible to meet with the police to order a residence card, it will not have any consequences if you start working until you have met with the police. This requires that you have obtained a au pair-permit that gives you the right to work and that you have booked an hour with the police to order a residence card (either via the application portal or via phone).
