The Directorate of the Police has developed new instructions specifying in which cases an emergency passport may be granted. Please not that emergency passports will not be granted for the purpose of holidays or normal visits to friends and family.
The changes in the rules are valid regardless of whether the application is filed in Norway or abroad. The need for an emergency passport must be documented. The Norwegian police encourages everyone not book travels abroad until they have received their travel document.
