In Norway, anyone can open a deposit account and use the bank’s payment system. Wage earners must usually open a salary account/current account into which their salary is paid. To open such an account, you must sign an account agreement and show valid identification (passport) at the bank. There are also other types of accounts, e.g. various types of savings accounts or investment accounts with varying interest rates depending on the amount deposited.
