Apply for private housing (temporary alternative to reception centre)

UDI has an application scheme for Ukrainians who want to live in a temporary alternative to an asylum reception centre or emergency accommodation.

You can apply if you:

  • are a Ukrainian national who can receive, or has received temporary collective protection, their families and persons who have protection (asylum) in Ukraine, and
  • have already been registered by the immigration authorities in Norway, and
  • have found a place to live, and
  • have not been settled as a resident yet.

Having found a place to live means that you either have been given a place to live

  • by a private individual, or
  • by an organisation, or
  • by a municipality

Unaccompanied minors are not covered by the scheme for a temporary alternative to an asylum reception centre. They can get help from a representative to apply for an alternative reception place according to the ordinary scheme.

You can use two application forms to apply for private housing.

1. Use this form if you have found housing yourself and have received a confirmation on an agreement that you may live there from the municipality (rapid procedure form).

2. Use this form if you have found housing yourself but have not contacted the municipality where the accommodation is located (regular form).

Two application forms

  • 1. Rapid procedure form

  • 2. Regular form

How to use the form

  • One application per family

  • Logging in

  • Signature
