My residence permit expires and cannot be renewed. Can I stay in Norway?

If you have a residence permit that expires, you must as a general rule return home. If you qualify for a different residence permit than the one you currently have, you can apply from Norway if you are a skilled worker or have had a valid residence permit for the last 9 months. The application for a new residence permit must be submitted before your current permit expires.

If you have not applied for a new residence permit before the expiry of the permit, and you do not leave before the deadline for leaving the country, this may result in you being expelled from Norway/Schengen.
