I already have a residence permit in Norway - how do I withdraw my application for protection?

To withdraw your application, you must write a letter to UDI in which you clearly state that you are withdrawing your asylum application. The letter must include your DUF number and your signature. You can find your DUF number on your residence card or on case papers from UDI.

Send the letter to UDI by post to:

Postboks 2098 Vika 
0125 Oslo

When we receive your letter, we will remove your application from consideration. You can apply for protection again later if your other residence permit loses its validity.
