What is the Service Centre?

The Service Centre for Foreign Workers (SUA) is a centre where the Labour Inspection Authority (Arbeidstilsynet), the Police (politiet), the Tax Administration (Skatteetaten) and the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) work together towards foreigners arriving to Norway for employment purposes, with the aim of providing them appropriate guidance and a shortening of the time used for processing their applications. We have offices in Oslo, Stavanger and Kirkenes.

  • Persons from EU/EEA-countries who come to work in Norway, with their family members
  • Persons from countries outside EU/EEA who are going to apply for residence permit in order to work in Norway, with their family members
  • Employers of foreign employees

The Service Centre in Kirkenes in addition serves Russian citizens from the Barents region, Russian frontier-commuters resident in the Barents region and Russian stallholders. This only applies to persons who are going to work in the northern counties Nordland, Troms or Finnmark.
