The suspension of the duty to return means that, until further notice, applicants who have received a final decision to return to Ukraine are not required to comply with the decision to leave the country. This decision applies both to individuals who sought asylum previously and to persons subject to a duty to return following the rejection of an application they submitted under other sections of the regulatory framework for residence.
Ukrainian citizens staying in Norway on residence permits that are expiring will be able to continue to say here pending future notification without any negative consequences.
The applications of Ukrainians seeking asylum will also be withdrawn from the 48-hour application-processing procedure.
We will return to other questions regarding the processing of cases concerning Ukrainian citizens at a later time.
