What can the Norwegian authorities do for my family in Palestine and Israel?

UDI has been asked to prioritise already submitted applications for residence permits from people who are currently in Palestine or Israel.

There are no changes in the application process for a residence permit in Norway, and the rules for family immigration are the same. 

To apply for protection in Norway, you must be in Norway or at the Norwegian border to apply. It is not possible to apply for asylum in Norway from a different country.

If you are in Palestine and Israel and you previously have received a final rejection on an application for protection or another residence permit, the case in which you have received a decision will not be reconsidered.

We know that many experience challenges in leaving Palestine and Israel now. Unfortunately, Norwegian authorities cannot help people to get out of Palestine and Israel.
