You or the person you have authorised will be notified when your application has been concluded and when the decision can be collected.

Your passport can be picked up where you submitted the application, normally within 1-2 weeks after UDI made the decision depending on the courier sendings.

If you have been granted a residence permit and need a visa to enter Norway, a sticker will be placed in your passport to allow you to travel to Norway.

If your application was rejected, you will receive a written explanation as to why it was rejected. You may appeal the decision. The appeal must be sent to the Directorate of Immigration by uploading the documents on their website.

You can find more information about the appeal process and waiting times on the UDI website.
