If you are married to, cohabitant with or the child of a person who has been granted protection in Norway, you can be allowed to live in Norway without any requirements as to this person’s income.
As the rules are now, you have to apply within one year after your family member was granted a residence permit to be exempted for the income requirement.
But from 1 August 2017, the Norwegian government introduce a new six-month deadline. This only applies for you who have a family member who is granted protection from 1 August 2017.
Remember that the application first is submitted when you have met and handed in the documents.
If you do not apply within these deadlines, your family member must have a good and steady income if your application is to be granted.
