Persons with Norwegian nationality on Jan Mayen and on Svalbard are normally registered as residents in a municipality on the mainland of Norway .

Very frequently the geographical name Spitsbergen, the largest island of Svalbard is (incorrectly) used meaning the whole group of island; instead of Svalbard, but actually meaning the whole country; like "Holland" for "The Netherlands".
