News regarding dual citizenship


The government has proposed allowing dual citizenship in Norway. Until the proposal has been passed by the parliament, the old rules still apply.

The government has now circulated the proposal for public comment. This means that organisations, public bodies and others who wish to give suggestions, can have their say about the proposal.

After this, the government can send the proposal to the parliament. If the parliament passes the change in the law which the government has proposed, dual citizenship will be allowed for everyone who is or wish to become a Norwegian citizen.

In the meantime, the old rules regarding dual citizenship still apply. We do not know yet the exact details of the new rules, if they are passed.

In any case, the new rules will not be introduced until 2019 at the earliest. 

As soon as we have any news, we will publish information here on our website about whether new rules will be introduced and the details of the new rules.
