New Service Centre in Stavanger opens today / News / The Foreigner

New Service Centre in Stavanger opens today. Processing times to drop to under a week. Foreign workers and their families from the Nordic countries and the EEA should have an easier time from today with the opening of a new service centre in Stavanger. Employees from the tax authorities (Skattetaten), police, Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority (Arbeidstilsynet), and Directorate of Immigration (UDI) are all localised under one roof, meaning better news for both employers and those who hate spending a third of their life in queues.

Foreign workers and their families from the Nordic countries and the EEA should have an easier time from today with the opening of a new service centre in Stavanger.

Employees from the tax authorities (Skattetaten), police, Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority (Arbeidstilsynet), and Directorate of Immigration (UDI) are all localised under one roof, meaning better news for both employers and those who hate spending a third of their life in queues.

Kristin Tøllefsen, head of the centre, tells Rogalands Avis that everything should only take one day if you have all the paperwork with you.

The centre is located in Skatt Vest’s offices on Lagårdsveien 46 and has between 10 and 15 employees, with some who also speak Polish, Russian, and Lithuanian.
