What does it mean to be granted a work permit?

  • In order for you to be allowed to work, UDI must first have given you a temporary work permit.
  • If you work without being allowed to by UDI, you are violating Norwegian law. If you work without a temporary work permit, this may have consequences for your application for protection.
  • If you get a temporary work permit, this means you can work. You have to find work yourself.
