You must hand in these documents with your application for a residence permit (Immigration Act section 40) Checklist for family immigration with spouse for those who previously have been granted a family immigration permit to get married
The cover letter is the attachment you received via email when you registered your application online. Please print it and bring it with you. If you are handing in your application at a Danish embassy, please bring a filled-out application form instead. (www.udi.no/forms)
If you hand in your application in Norway, you normally only need to show your passport and hand in the copies.
If you hand in your application abroad, you must normally hand in both your passport and the copies. If you need your passport back before you receive an answer to your application, please contact the place where you hand in the application.
Documents about your family
Documentation of the income of the reference person (please choose the cathegory which is relevant for the reference person)
You must document that the reference person has an income of at least
NOK 264 264 per year pre-tax
now. In addition, the reference person’s income last year must have been at about the same level. The reference person cannot have received any financial assistance from NAV (økonomisk sosialhjelp) during the last 12 months. Please check the income requirements, what kind of income that counts and whether you can be exempted from any of the requirements at www.udi.no/incomerequirement.
Documents you must hand in if the reference person works
In the contract/confirmation it must be clear how long the employment will last and the scope (full time or part-time) of the employment. If your work is temporary, you should enclose a confirmation from your employer if it is possible to prolong your contract.
You do not need to bring originals of documents from Norwegian authorities. You are only to hand in a copy of the document. The copy does not need to be stamped.
Requirements for documents from other countries than Norway
You must show all the documents in their original form, and your passport. The original documents from your home country must be legalised by the foreign authority. You can contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or equivalent in your home country to get information about how to get your documents legalised. No legalisation of your passport is required.
You must also bring copies of all the documents and your passport.
If you hand in your application abroad, the copies must be stamped by the authorities in your country, or by a notarius publicus.
If you hand in your application to the police in Norway you do not need to have the copies stamped (neither the copies of your documents, nor the copies of your passport).
If your documents are in a different language than Norwegian, English, German or French, they also have to be translated to Norwegian or English by an authorised/certified translator. It must be stated on the translation who translated the document and when.
You must also hand in a copy of the translations. If you hand in your application abroad, the copy of the translation must be stamped by the authorities in your country, or a notarius publicus.
Application questionnaire to be filled out by the applicant (not the reference person in Norway)
The UDI will look at your answers when we process your application. It is therefore important that you fill in this questionnaire as accurately as possible, even if not all the questions are relevant to your situation.
