Gather the necessary documentation

You must gather all the documents in the relevant checklist on UDI’s website. Some of the documents must be provided by your contact person in Norway; others you will have to obtain yourself. 

If you want someone to act on your behalf in connection with your application, you must authorise this person to do so. Please visit the UDI website for more information and the relevant form.

When submitting an application for a residence permit, you must also hand in your passport and other original documents for verification purposes. Once the processing of your application is completed, the passport and original documents will be returned to you. For nationals who do not need a visa to enter Norway, your passport and original documents will be returned to you after the document check has been carried out, normally within 7-10 days after submission. If you need your passport in the meantime, please contact the Embassy in Amman for advise.
