How to use the list
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 also 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.
Documentation you must hand in when applying for the first time
- 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.
The signature form 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 are going to work in an industry in which a collective agreement applies, you must hand in a copy of the first page of the agreement and a copy of the page showing the pay rates, where the employer has marked the pay rate you have been offered.
- If you are going to work in an industry in which no collective agreement applies, you must hand in documentation which shows that the pay you have been offered is not poorer than is normal for someone in your occupation in the place you are going to work, for example wage statistics from a trade association.
This can be a house, apartment, a room in a shared flat or similar. If you are renting, you must hand in a written rental contract which is approved by the house owner, manager or housing co-operative.
It is recomended (but not required) that the apartment number (dwelling number) is stated on the contract. This number consists of an H and four digits, for example H0101. When you are filling in the application form, we will ask you for this number.
