In February and the beginning of March it was difficult to book an appointment because there were many who applied at the same time after it became possible to hold dual citizenship.
Due to the corona situation the police stations closed in March and will remain only partially open in the time ahead. In most police districts it is not possible to book an appointment at this time.
For those who live abroad, it is not possible to book an appointment yet.
We ask you to stay updated through the police website for more information (external website), and check in your application if there has become any new appointments available (external website).
We will not be able to process your case if you have not been to the police yet, or if the police have not sent your case to the UDI.
After you have attended your appointment, the police or the embassy will forward the application to the UDI. You will receive an email when UDI have received your case.
This summer we will start processing some of the applications from those who applied after 5 February. We do not know when you will receive an answer on your application.
Some of the cases will be processed automatically. “Automatic processing” means that a computer uses information that about you to assess whether you can be granted Norwegian citizenship, without a caseworker looking at your case. This is only relevant for those who have applied after 5 February 2020 (and have used the new forms).
Not all cases will be processed automatically. These are examples of cases that will not be processed automatically:
If your application is being processed by a case worker, it does not mean that there is something wrong with your case. It means that a computer is not able to process your application automatically.
