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 your employer in Norway is going to apply for a residence permit on your behalf, with a written authorisation from you, it is sufficient that your employer hands in copies of documentation of your education and/or work experience and your passport, instead of originals.
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)
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. If you do not yet know where you are going to rent, you can instead write an explanation on a separate sheet regarding where you are planning to live and how you will organise this.
It is reccomended (but not required) that the apartment number (dwelling number) is stated on the contract if you are renting an apartement. This number consists of an H and four digits, for example H0101.
If you have previously handed in this documentation to the UDI, you do not have to hand it in again.
