In addition, the fee for applications for family reunification in cases where the family member in Norway (the reference person) has a residence permit after having applied for asylum and have not been given a permanent residence permit yet, be reduced by 25 per cent. This will be implemented by the end of spring 2020. The reason why this fee is not changed from 1 January, is that it is necessary to first make some changes in the UDI Application Portal and other systems.
