What happens to my application while I wait?

  1. Once you have submitted your application documents to the police or the embassy, your case will be forwarded to UDI. When UDI receives your application, you will be notified by email or SMS. 
  2. The application is now waiting to be processed by UDI. As soon as your application is next to be processed, UDI will consider and make a decision in your case.
  3. When UDI or the embassy has made a decision, you will be notified either by the embassy, if you are in your home country, or by the police, if you are in Norway. If you have given someone power of attorney, this person will always receive the decision, and must notify you.
