Opening a bank account in Norway has many advantages. For example, you can easily pay bills by check or by you can pay an invoice online. It’s also a cheaper option than organizing a money order (and you’ll have a bank statement proof that you’ve paid your bill).
You also have the option of getting a debit card for the bank account. This allows you to easily withdraw money or make payments in stores. A debit card is usually accepted for purchases wherever credit cards are accepted. When you open a new bank account, you’ll usually receive a debit card and can setup a PIN straight away.
