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 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 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.
