Choose a digital mailbox

Norwegian authorities would like to send you mail digitally rather than on paper. Both Digipost and e-Boks are recognised mail systems for this purpose. If you are uncertain about which mailbox to choose, just remember that the most important thing is that you set up a digital mailbox account. Then you can get mail from public authorities in Norway digitally.

Over the next few days, the Agency for Public Management and e-Government (Difi) will be sending out an e-mail to encourage people to set up a digital mailbox account.

How to get a digital mailbox

  1. Get out your electronic ID (e-ID), for example your BankID.
  2. Go to e-Boks or Digipost for more information about the different solutions. Choose the mailbox you want. 
  3. Follow the instructions from e-Boks or Digipost to create a mailbox. 

You will then receive a text message from Difi confirming your choice of mailbox.
