The applicant, or the person who holds Power of Attorney, will be notified by e-mail by the UDI when the application has been processed.
If you have been granted a residence permit, an entry visa (D-visa) to Norway will be issued by the Embassy of Norway in Nairobi. The VFS in Nairobi will contact you to let you know when you can collect your passport with the entry visa.
If your application for residence permit has been rejected, you will receive a written explanation from the UDI as to why it was rejected.
You may appeal the decision within three weeks:
- The appeal must be forwarded to the UDI by uploading the documents on their website: https://www.udi.no/en/word-definitions/forwarding-documents/
- The appeal must be signed.
