Confirmation of refugee status


You must send us a letter to receive confirmation that you have refugee status.

You must send us a letter in which you request confirmation that you have refugee status. Unfortunately, for security reasons, you cannot send us an email about this. 

Please note: You cannot go to the UDI’s office to request documents; you have to send a letter. 

Our address is

P.O. Box 2098 Vika, 0125 Oslo

In the letter, you must write

  • that you need confirmation of your refugee status 
  • your name 
  • your previous name if you have changed it (the name you had when you came to Norway)
  • your personal ID number
  • the year you came to Norway
  • your address
