Can I travel to and from Norway if I have a residence permit in another Schengen country?
If you have a valid residence permit in another Schengen country, you may travel to Norway while your application is being processed if you belong to one of the following groups:
- You are applying for family immigration with your spouse or partner
- You are a minor under 18 applying for family immigration with your parent (minors must have a written consent from both parents or the parent with parental responsibility)
- You are mother or father of a child with Norwegian citizenship and the child is living with you on a permanent basis.
- You are classed as a skilled worker
You may then stay in Norway until your application has been processed even if you have been in Norway for more than 90 days.
Please remember that if you travel to and from Norway after you have applied for a family immigration permit, you must follow the rules for visiting Norway without a visa. For example, if you have been in Norway for 90 days or more, you will have to stay outside Norway for 90 days before you can travel into Norway again. If you are granted a family immigration permit while you are abroad, you may travel back to Norway immediately.
