I have been granted a study permit and want to come to Norway for the autumn semester of 2021. May I have my entry deadline extended?

If you have been granted a study permit earlier and will come to Norway for the semester start in august 2021, and your study permit is valid till at least 28 February 2022
If you have followed your studies online from your home country for the spring semester and will travel to Norway to attend your studies from August 2021, then you may have your entry deadline extended. UDI can give you an extended entry deadline if you send us a request through our upload service. Your school must give you a confirmation of the last possible date of arrival for the autumn semester, and you must upload this confirmation to your case. 

If you have been granted a study permit now and will arrive later than the start of the semester in August 2021
If you want to come to Norway during the autumn semester of 2021, the school where you will complete the studies must confirm that you can arrive later in the semester and by which date you should have arrived. UDI can give you a new entry deadline if you send us a request and this confirmation through our upload service.

If you have a study permit for 2020/2021 valid until 31 August 2021
If your studies started in August 2020 and your study permit was given for semesters 2020/2021, UDI will not extend your entry deadline. If you continue to study in Norway from August 2021, you must apply for a new study permit to start your studies in August 2021.
