What will happen if I apply for protection or have a residence permit in another European countrybut I want to come to Norway?
If you apply for protection in Norway and meet the conditions for collective protection, we will process your application in Norway.
If you are not eligible for collective protection, you may apply for protection and individual assessment of your application. However, if you have already applied for protection, or have a residence permit in another European country, then that country may still be responsible for processing your application, and you may be required to return there. This is covered by the Dublin Regulation. You can read more about how the Dublin Regulation works here.
Example of when the Dublin Regulation applies: You have a residence permit in another European country and left Ukraine long before 24 February 2022. As a result, you are not eligible for protection in Norway. We will then contact the country you received your resident permit from so that your application for protection is processed there.
