This happens when you have applied for protection (asylum)

You have come to Norway to find a safe place to live. When you ask for permission to live in Norway, we need to check whether it is safe for you to go back home. Until we decide whether you can live here, we will refer to you as an asylum seeker.

As an asylum seeker, you will have to talk to a lot of people and move many times. You also have to wait a long time. You can choose to go home at any time.

You will find more information about the process at (external website). The information has been translated into many languages.
