If you have been issued a penalty notice or have a conviction, or if you have given incorrect information to the authorities or you have been arrested by the police without a residence permit, the Norwegian authorities will consider whether to expel you from Norway.
The police, or the UDI, will send you a letter to inform you that the UDI is considering whether you should be expelled. You will be informed about why we are considering having you expelled and about your rights to a lawyer and an interpreter.
If you believe that the information in the letter is incorrect, or if you have information that you believe the UDI needs in order to consider your case, you must submit it to the UDI within the deadline stated in the letter. You can also explain why you think that being expelled would be too severe or too great an intervention in your life seen in relation to the criminal offence.
The UDI will consider you case and decide whether or not to expel you. You will receive a letter from the UDI that will state whether you have been expelled and whether you are subject to a prohibition against entry, how long the prohibition against entry will be in force and how you can appeal.
