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. 

When applying for a residence permit please make sure that you have gathered all documents required according to the relevant checklist. 

Missing documents may delay the application process.

Bring all the documents to your appointment with VFS.

If you want someone to help you 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. Only the person who needs the visa or someone with a written power of attorney will be given information about a specific case.
