Moving to Vestfold (Sandefjord)


I just got approved for my family reunification application for spouse. Im going to move to Norway by January. My husband is Norwegian. There are things that i need to do when i get there and while im preparing for that time I want to get as much information as possible to help me settle there.

Register to vestfold police - planning to do this the first week of my arrival

Medical - i read in decision letter that i have to do the tuberculosis. Wondering if there's anything else than that so i can be prepared?

Skattetateen - change name (i use my husband's last name in my passport already) What else?

Choosing a GP- this i wantto get as many idea as possible who have had experience already. Anyone that live in Sandefjord who can suggest a nice, patient and good GP? I think i would prefer female since we are planning to get pregnant.

Opening bank account - my husband has everything with DNB. Is there a downside with this bank and what can you suggest?

Start Free Norwegian Course (600h) - this I dont know where to start and the things i need to know. What are the schools in Sandefjord or nearby that offers free and when the school starts?

Can you help/give me an idea/advice/tips with these things? And maybe there are other things that i missed? Is there anyone here who live in same city? What are your experiences in settling?

Thank you in advance everyone for taking the time. Looking forward to read your responses. 😊
