Kindly note that the applications for a personal number will be forwarded to Skatt Nord (Folkeregisteret) in Tromsø, Norway, for processing. Applicants from Iraq will be asked for a DNA test.
Routines for DNA test are as follows:
Skatt Nord in Tromsø (Folkeregisteret), receives the application for a personal number from the Embassy. Skatt Nord Tromsø will inform the applicant about the requirement for the DNA test and give instructions regarding payment for the test.
- After having received the payment, Folkeregisteret will send the DNA test kit to the Embassy.
- The Embassy will request the applicant to come to the Embassy in Amman to have the DNA samples taken. The samples will be sent to Norway for analysis.
- Folkeregisteret will inform the applicant and Embassy on the decision. It takes about 6-8 weeks from the date when DNA samples are sent from the Embassy until a decision on personal number is made.
