Citizenship test

Citizenship test

Some citizenship regulations were changed with effect from 2017.

All applicants between the ages of 18 and 67, applying for Norwegian citizenship must document their skills in social knowledge.

Both of these tests are approved:

  • Citizenship test
  • Social studies test in Norwegian


These tests are of equal value. However, the social studies test contains a more difficult Norwegian text than in the Citizenship test.

You can register for the tests at Kurstorget.
