The applicant is the person who wishes to visit or live in Norway.
When you turn up to your appointment with the police or embassy/consulate you must hand in this list and copies of the documents on this list. You must also present the original documents.
If any of your documents are in a different language than Norwegian or English, you must hand in a translation of the documents into Norwegian or English.
It is your responsibility to make sure that you have handed in all documents on the list which are required for your application. If all relevant documents are not handed in, this may lead to you having to wait longer for an answer or your application being rejected.
Please note: Some embassies may request additional documents based on local conditions if you are applying from abroad.
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)
For example: Visitor's visa, residence permit in another Schengen country and /or documentation which shows when you travelled into Norway/Schengen.
If you have a residence permit in Norway, you do not have to hand in anything.
If you have previously handed in this documentation to the UDI, you do not have to hand it in again.
You must hand in documents which contain detailed information from your previous employers regarding how long you worked there, what training you were given, your work tasks and your qualifications.
You only need to document work experience in addition to, or instead of, documentation of education if the work experience should be part of the assessment of whether or not you are a skilled worker.
