UDI cannot answer questions regarding border control in Norway or other countries. Neither can we give you any confirmations you can use when travelling which airlines and the border control in other countries will accept as valid documents.

We are aware that it can be challenging to book an appointment with the police and that there are long waiting times, and we are sorry that this can have unfortunate consequences for you. The police are working to reduce their waiting time. Unfortunately, neither the police nor the UDI can help you get an appointment earlier than those available appointments you can find in the application portal. The police update the booking calendar with available appointments where they have capacity.
You must use the application portal to find a free appointment with the police. They have limited offers due to the corona situation, and many try to get an appointment. The police post new appointments continuously, so please check regularly.
If there is no visible booking button on the receipt page when you are logged in to the application portal, it means that there are currently no available appointments now at the police station where you have sent the case. Then you have to check again for available hours later. You can not book an appointment to a place other than the one you chose when you filled out the registration form/application form.
