If you have had problems leaving Norway because you have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, you must get hold of and keep the documentation showing that you have tested positive. You must present this documentation if a deportation- or expulsion case is created when leaving Norway. You will also need this documentation if you apply for a visa to enter Norway later. Do not submit documentation to UDI now.
Please do not contact UDI now. We cannot give you a confirmation to stay in Norway. UDI will consider whether it has been possible for you to travel out of Norway if an expulsion- or deportation case is opened.
Yes, you do. During a short period when the corona situation made it difficult to return to your home country, UDI did not expell or deport foreign citizens who stayed in Norway beyond their departure deadline in their permit or visa. From 15 September 2020, stays after the departure deadline may have resulted in rejection of entry or expulsion.
If you applied for a renewal of your permit or a residence permit on new grounds before your permit expired, you can stay in Norway to await your application's response.
If you have questions regarding your application, residence permit or residence card, check if you can find answers in our list of frequently asked questions.
