Who do not need to get a Somalian passport?

When you apply for citizenship, you do not need to get a Somalian passport if you:

  • are born in Norway, or
  • came to Norway when you were under the age of 18 and one of your parents is already a Norwegian citizen

NB! If you are travelling outside of Norway without a Norwegian citizenship, you must have a Somali passport.

You do not need a Somali passport if you have a residence permit on the basis of the need for protection (have received a green travel certificate for refugees).
