You book an appointment for handing in the application.
The police interview you about what you have been subjected to.
The police forward your application to the UDI for processing.
We consider whether we have the information we need. Sometimes we need to get more information.
When we have the information we need, we make a decision whether to grant or reject the application.
Most residence permits are granted for three years.
If your application is rejected, you can appeal the decision. When you appeal the UDI will reconsider your case. The UDI can either grant your appeal or forward it to the Immigration Appeals Board (UNE) for consideration.
If you do not appeal, you must leave Norway.
UNE will consider your case again, and either reject or grant your appeal.
If UNE also rejects your appeal, there are no other possibilities of appeal. In that case, you must leave Norway.
