You will be notified by the embassy or by power of attorney when your application has been processed.

If you have been granted a residence permit, a sticker will be placed in your passport to allow you to travel to Norway. The embassy/consulate will contact you to let you know when you can collect your passport.

If your application has been rejected, you will receive a written explanation as to why it was rejected. You may appeal the decision. The appeal must be forwarded to the Directorate of Immigration by uploading the documents on their website. Alternatively, the appeal can be submitted to the Embassy by e-mail or letter/courier.
