I have already applied for a residence permit in Ukraine and am waiting for an answer. What can I do?

If you have handed in an application for a residence permit for Norway from Ukraine, the embassy in Ankara will inform you when UDI has reached a decision.

Citizens who do not need a visa for Norway can in some cases travel to Norway before their residence permit has been granted. These are the same groups that can apply for residence permits from within Norway. You can find more information about whether you have the right to apply for a residence permit from within Norway in our guide “Want to apply”.

You can travel to Norway without a visa if you have a biometric passport. If you do not have a biometric passport or are missing ID documents, you can find information on how to travel legally to Norway here.
