Who can use the Application Portal?
Most of our applicants can use the Application Portal. Before you register an application form, you should go to www.udi.no/want-to-apply. Here you can find out whether you can use the Application Portal, information about what kind of applications you can submit, where you should hand in the application and which documents you must hand in with the application.
You cannot register an application for a residence permit on the basis of protection (asylum) or on the grounds of strong humanitarian considerations on the Application Portal. This is also the case when you are going to renew your residence permit.
It is not possible to check when your application has been processed on the Application Portal. Please see our waiting times.
If you have questions about a pending case or need information related to immigration regulations and procedures, please contact the UDI.
Please be advised that the total process for obtaining a visa consists of several parts:
The processing times may be longer than this during peak travel season (May, June, July, August and December) due to case volume or if cases require further scrutiny.
Please note that neither the Embassy nor our consulates can be held responsible for technical difficulties, human errors or shipping delays in the processing of passports, permits and visa applications.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to apply in time for the intended departure.
For permits: 3 months prior
For visas: 1 to 3 month prior is recommended.
