Norway - Banking
Bank opening hours vary but are generally from 8 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. on Mondays to Fridays.
ATMs (called 'Minibank') are widely available in all cities and towns for cash withdrawals and other services. Most of these accept international credit cards such as MasterCard and Visa for cash withdrawals, and some allow withdrawals of cash in other European currencies. There are ATMs located in shops and petrol stations which allow cash withdrawals using the Bank Axept debit card, available from Norwegian banks.
If you are going to be working in Norway you will be required to open a bank account there so that your salary can be paid straight into your account. To open an account, you will need a Norwegian identity number and you may also be asked to show your passport and evidence of employment.
Most major credit cards are accepted in Norway in hotels, restaurants and other major establishments, but supermarkets and other retailers often only accept Norwegian-issued cards.
Norwegian krone can be brought into and taken out of the country up to a maximum limit of 25,000kr. There are no restrictions on the export of foreign currency from Norway, but evidence must be shown that it was previously imported or converted from a currency other than krone.
