Frequently asked questions

If you want to apply for housing allowance or a start-up loan and grant, you must have BankID, which is a secure electronic ID. 

If you have any questions about logging in or about BankID, you can find more information at Norge.no. You can also contact user support on 800 30 300.

Do you want to apply for a start-up loan and grant, but you don’t have BankID? 

If you don’t have BankID, you can get an “assistant” to apply on your behalf. As an assistant or guardian, you must contact the municipality to ask for permission to apply electronically on someone else’s behalf.
