If an embassy has made the decision in your application, you must hand in the appeal to this embassy.
Who can appeal?
What is the deadline for appealing?
- You must appeal within three weeks from the date on which you, your authorised representative or your lawyer received the decision or when you should have become aware of the decision.
- Have you not managed to obtain all the documentation you wish to enclose with your appeal within the three-week deadline? You must in any case submit your appeal within the deadline, but you can write in the appeal that you wish to send us more documentation. You will then be given a new deadline of two weeks to submit the documentation.
How do you appeal?
- You must appeal in writing. This means that you must send a signed letter to the embassy stating which decision you are appealing. The letter must be written in Norwegian or English. You must sign the letter and explain why you believe the decision you have received is incorrect.
- If you have any new information or documentation, you must enclose it.
- It does not cost anything to appeal.
How long will it take before your appeal is decided?
See information about case processing times.
What happens when you appeal a decision?
- When you appeal, the embassy will reconsider your case.
- The embassy can either grant your appeal or forward it to the UDI for consideration.
- The UDI will consider your case again, and either reject or grant your appeal.
- If the UDI also rejects your appeal, there are no other possibilities of appeal.
