Immigration regulations require that citizens of some countries must be tested for tuberculosis if they are staying more than three months in Norway. The test is free.
If you are required to take the test but fail to do so, the police will be notified and it may compromise your residence permit.
You can see who are required to take the test at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.
When you stay in Norway for more than 6 months and have received a national ID number, you can register for MinID pin codes. You will need these codes to log on to online public services in Norway
When you receive your national ID number or D-number, go to this link for ordering pin codes and fill in your national ID number. The codes will be sent to the address registered with the Norwegian National Population Register. This normally takes a few days. When you receive the pin code letter in the mail, register as a new user of MinID with the pin codes.
Do not order the pin codes more than once, as ordering codes several times makes the process, and the waiting time, longer.
You must bring a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with you from your home country.* This entitles you to medical care on the same conditions as the citizens of the EU/EEA country you are visiting. The general rule is that you do not become a member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme. If you do not have a European Health Insurance Card, you must have private insurance.
